    I myself am more divine than any I see—
    Margaret Fuller (1810–1850)

    There’s Margaret and Marjorie and Dorothy and Nan,
    A Daphne and a Mary who live in privacy;
    One’s had her fill of lovers, another’s had but one,
    Another boasts, “I pick and choose and have but two or three.”
    If head and limb have beauty and the instep’s high and light
    They can spread out what sail they please for all I have to say....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Ring out, ring out thy mournful rhymes,
    But ring the fuller minstrel in.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
