“Who will ever know to what
this road invites me!
And it is the uncertain road every morning,
and so is every life!”
( J. C. i Puigoriol in “Cançoneta incerta”, English by S. Pila)
“Beautiful Soup, so rich and green,
Waiting in a hot tureen!
Who for such dainties would not stoop?
Soup of the evening, beautiful Soup!
Soup of the evening,
Beautiful, beautiful Soup!”
(L. Carroll in Alice’s adventures in Wonderland)
"When the bells justle in the tower
The hollow night amid,
Then on my tongue the taste is sour
Of all I ever did."
(A. Housman, no title, in Additional Poems)
