No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;
Am an attendant lord, one that will do
To swell a progress, start a scene or two,
Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool,
Deferential, glad to be of use,
Politic, cautious, and meticulous;
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous--
Almost, at times, the Fool.
--Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, by T.S. Eliot

I want to call back
the blackberry flowers
that have fallen
though pear blossoms remain.
--Li Qing-Jao
