    There are enough fagots and waste wood of all kinds in the forests of most of our towns to support many fires, but which at present warm none, and, some think, hinder the growth of the young wood.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    poor Felix Randal;
    How far from then forethought of, all thy more boisterous years,
    When thou at the random grim forge, powerful amidst peers,
    Didst fettle for the great gray drayhorse his bright and battering
    sandal!
    Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889)
