Passage

It is not growing like a tree

In bulk, both make man better be,

Or standing as on oak, three hundred years,

To fall a log at last, dry, bold and sere;

A life of a day.

Is fairer in May.

Although, it fall and die that night

It was the plant and flower o’ light,

In small proportions we just beauties see.

And in short measure life may perfect be.

– Ben Jonson

Passage

She dwelt among the untrodden ways

Beside the springs of Dove;

A maid whom there were none to praise

And very few to love.

A violet by a mossy stone

Half-hidden from the eye!

Fair as a star, when only one

Is shining in the Sky.

She lived unknown and few could know

When she ceased to be;

But she in her grave and, on,

The difference to me.

– William Wordsworth
