I expect to pass through this world but once
When the Himalayan peasant meets the he-bear in his pride
Move him into the sun
Monday's child is fair of face
I met a traveller from an antique land
When I was a child
What a piece of work is a man!
I wish I loved the Human Race
At Tara today in this fateful hour
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
