Passage

She lives in a garret

Up a haunted stair,

And even when she’s frightened

There’s nobody to care.

She cooks so small a dinner

She dines on the smell,

And even if she’s hungry

There’s nobody to tell.

She sweeps her musty lodging

As the dawn steals near,

And even when she’s crying

There’s nobody to hear.

I haven’t seen my neighbour

Since a long time ago,

And even if she’s dead

There’s nobody to know.

– Frances Park

Passage

These few precepts in thy memory

See thou character. Give thy thoughts no tongue,

Nor any unproportioned thought this act;

Be thou familiar, but by no means vulgar

Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried

Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel,

But do not dull thy palm with entertainment

One each new hatched, unfledged comrade. Beware

Of entrance to a quarrel, but being in,

Bear that the opposed may beware of thee.

Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice,

Take each man’s censure, but reserve thy judgment.

Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy,

But not expressed in fancy; rich not gaudy;

For the appeal often proclaims the man.

Neither a borrower nor a lender be;

For loan oft loses both itself and friend,

And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.

– William Shakespeare
