    The victors and the vanquished then the storm it tossed and tore,
    As hard they strove, those worn-out men, upon that surly shore;
    Dead Nelson and his half-dead crew, his foes from near and far,
    Were rolled together on the deep that night at Trafalgar!
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    Nought cared this body for wind or weather
    When Youth and I lived in’t together.
    —Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)
