    Student of our sweet English tongue,

    I was a poet, I was young.
    —James Elroy Flecker (1884–1919)

    Whatever question there may be of his talent, there can be none, I think, of his genius. It was a slim and crooked one, but it was eminently personal. He was unperfect, unfinished, inartistic; he was worse than provincial—he was parochial.
    —Henry James (1843–1916)

    For lust of knowing what should not be known,
    We take the Golden Road to Samarkand.

    When the words rustle no more,
    And the last work’s done,
    When the bolt lies deep in the door,
    —James Elroy Flecker (1884–1919)
