    her swung breasts
    Sway like full-blown yellow
    Gloire de Dijon roses.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    When first my lines of heavenly joys made mention,
    Such was their luster, they did so excel,
    That I sought out quaint words and trim invention;
    My thoughts began to burnish, sprout, and swell,
    Curling with metaphors a plain intention,
    Decking the sense as if it were to sell.
    —George Herbert (1593–1633)

    Carlyle must undoubtedly plead guilty to the charge of mannerism. He not only has his vein, but his peculiar manner of working it. He has a style which can be imitated, and sometimes is an imitator of himself.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
