    The forward Youth that would appear
    Must now forsake his Muses dear,
    Nor in the Shadows sing
    His Numbers languishing.
    Andrew Marvell (1621–1678)

    O who shall from this dungeon raise
    A soul enslaved so many ways?
    With bolts of bones, that fettered stands
    In feet; and manacled in hands:
    Here blinded with an eye; and there
    Deaf with the drumming of an ear;
    A soul hung up, as ‘twere, in chains
    Of nerves, and arteries, and veins;
    —Andrew Marvell (1621–1678)
