    I mount the steps and ring the bell, turning
    Wearily, as one would turn to nod good-bye to Rochefoucauld,
    If the street were time and he at the end of the street,
    And I say, “Cousin Harriet, here is the Boston Evening Transcript.”
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    My name shall mount upon Eternitie.
    Michael Drayton (1563–1631)

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
