    Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

    As far as I can see, this autumn haze
    That spreading in the evening air both ways
    Makes the new moon look anything but new
    And pours the elm-tree meadow full of blue,
    Is all the smoke from one poor house alone....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
