    Thou didst drink
    The stale of horses and the gilded puddle
    That beasts would cough at.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Ferdinand De Soto, sleeping
    In the river, never heard
    Four-and-twenty Spanish hooves
    Fling off their iron and cut the green,
    Leaving circles new and clean
    While overhead the wing-tips whirred.
    Mark Van Doren (1894–1973)
