    Times go by turns, and chances change by course,
    From foul to fair, from better hap to worse.

    The sea of Fortune doth not ever flow,
    She draws her favours to the lowest ebb;
    Her tides have equal times to come and go,
    Her loom doth weave the fine and Coarsest web;

    Of the wheel as it rolls unrelentingly over
    A cow plodding through car-traffic on a street in Iasi,
    And over the haunts of Robert Pinsky’s mother and father
    And wife and children and his sweet self
    Robert Pinsky (b. 1940)
