Charles Stuart Calverley Quotes


    1 In those old days which poets say were golden --
    2 (Perhaps they laid the gilding on themselves:
    3 And, if they did, I'm all the more beholden
    4 To those brown dwellers in my dusty shelves,
    5 Who talk to me 'in language quaint and olden'
    6 Of gods and demigods and fauns and elves,
    7 Pan with his pipes, and Bacchus with his leopards,
    8 And staid young goddesses who flirt with shepherds:)
