„For beauty with sorrow
Is a burden hard to be borne:
The evening light on the foam, and the swans, there;
That music, remote, forlorn.“

—  Де Ла Мар, Уолтер Джон, The Old Summerhouse.

To which the swans curveted, a will to change,
A will to make iris frettings on the blank.“

The west wind was the music, the motion, the force To which the swans curveted, a will to change, A will to make iris frettings on the blank.
