    Rose Aylmer, whom these wakeful eyes
    May weep, but never see,
    A night of memories and of sighs
    I consecrate to thee.

    Go, Soul, the body’s guest,
    Upon a thankless arrant:
    Fear not to touch the best;
    The truth shall be thy warrant:
    Go, since I needs must die,
    And give the world the lie.
    —Sir Walter Raleigh (1552?–1618)

    After Stéphane Mallarmé, after Paul Verlaine, after Gustave Moreau, after Puvis de Chavannes, after our own verse, after all our subtle colour and nervous rhythm, after the faint mixed tints of Conder, what more is possible? After us the Savage God.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    For, surely, surely, where
    Your voice and graces are,
    Nothing of death can any feel or know.
