    Thou art not, Penshurst, built to envious show,
    Of touch or marble; nor canst boast a row
    Of polished pillars, or a roof of gold;
    Thou hast no lantern whereof tales are told,
    Or stair, or courts; but stand’st an ancient pile,
    Ben Jonson (1572–1637)

    Wise child, didst hastily return
    And mad’st thy mother’s womb thine urn.
    How summed a circle didst thou leave mankind
    Of deepest lore, could we the center find!
    —Ben Jonson (1572–1637)

    When long ago I saw her ride
    Under Ben Bulben to the meet,
    The beauty of her country-side
    With all youth’s lonely wildness stirred,
    She seemed to have grown clean and sweet
    Like any rock-bred, sea-borne bird....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
