    With the noise of the mourning of the Swattish nation!
    Fallen is at length
    Its tower of strength;
    Its sun is dimmed ere it had nooned;
    Dead lies the great Ahkoond,
    The great Ahkoond of Swat
    Is not!
    George Thomas Lanigan (1845–1886)

    Up the reputable walks of old established trees
    They stalk, children of the nouveaux riches; chimes
    Of the tall Clock Tower drench their heads in blessing:
    “I don’t wanna play at your house;
    I don’t like you any more.”
    My house stands opposite, on the other hill,
    William Dewitt Snodgrass (b. 1926)
