Creative Quotations from . . .
Algernon Charles Swinburne
(1837-1909) born on
Apr 05
English poet, critic. He was the symbol of mid-Victorian poetic revolt due to his outstanding prosodic innovations, e.g., insistent alliteration and sheer melodiousness.
I will go back to the great sweet mother,
Mother and lover of men, the sea.

For words divide and rend;
But silence is most noble till the end.
Yea, is not even Apollo, with hair and harpstring of gold,
A bitter God to follow, a beautiful God to behold?
I am tired of tears and laughter,
And men that laugh and weep;
Of what may come hereafter
For men that sow and reap.
Hope thou not much, and fear thou not at all.
