    Before the not mowing brings trees on....

    The twelfth day of Christmas,
    My true love sent to me
    Twelve lords a-leaping.

    In a room on the floor below,
    Sunless, cooler—a brimming
    Saucer of wax, marbly and dim—
    I have lit what’s left of my life.

    A true politeness does not result from any hasty and artificial polishing, it is true, but grows naturally in characters of the right grain and quality, through a long fronting of men and events, and rubbing on good and bad fortune.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
