A globe of dew
  Filling, in the morning new,
    Some eyed flower, whose young leaves waken
      On an unimagined world;
        Constellated suns unshaken,
          Orbits measureless are furl'd
            In that frail and fading sphere,
              With ten millions gathered there
                To tremble, gleam and disappear.

Hell is a city much like London--
  A populous and a smoky city;

      Men of glory in the wars.

Like the young moon,
  When on the sunlit limits of the night
    Her white shell trembles amid crimson air,
      And whilst the sleeping tempest gathers might,
        Doth, as the herald of its coming, bear
          The ghost of its dead mother, whose dim form
            Bends in dark ether from her infant's chair.
      - [Moon]

Love is free; to promise for ever to love the same woman is not less absurd than to promise to believe the same creed; such a vow in both cases excludes us from all inquiry.
