SKULLS

Look on its broken arch, its ruined wall,
  Its chambers desolate, its portals foul;
    Yes, this was once ambition's airy hall,
      The dome of thought, the palace of the soul.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Thou hollow skull! what meanings lurk
  Beneath that grin? 'tis but to say
    Thy brain like mine was once at work
      With thoughts that led thee far astray;
        Longing for truth, you sought the day's clear light,
          But miserably stray'd in gloom and night.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Where be your gibes now? your gambols? your songs? your flashes of merriment that were wont to set the table on a roar?
      - William Shakespeare
