    If the jests that you crack have an orthodox smack,
    You may get a bland smile from these sages;
    But should it, by chance, be imported from France,
    Half-a-crown is stopped out of your wages!
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)

    So you may say,
    Greek flower; Greek ecstasy
    reclaims for ever
    one who died
    following
    intricate songs’ lost measure.”
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
