SWIMMING
[ Also see Sport ]

How many a time have I
  Cloven with arm still lustier, breast more daring
    The wave all roughen'd; with a swimmer's stroke
      Flung the billows back from my drench'd hair,
        And laughing from my lip the audacious brine
          Which kiss'd it like a wine-cup rising o'er
            The waves as they rose, and prouder still
              The loftier they uplifted me.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

There was one did battle with the storm
  With careless, desperate force; full many times
    His life was won and lost, as though he reck'd not--
      No hand did aid him, and he aided none--
        Alone he breasted the broad wave, alone
          That man was sav'd.
      - Charles Robert Maturin

I saw him beat the surges under him,
  And ride upon their backs; he trod the water,
    Whose enmity he flung aside, and breasted
      The surge most swoln that met him.
      - William Shakespeare

The torrent roar'd; and we did buffet it
  With lusty sinews; throwing it aside,
    And stemming it with hearts of controversy.
      - William Shakespeare
