A great, sad beauty, in whose eyes
Lay all the loves of Paradise.“

„The loves and hours of the life of a man,
They are swift and sad, being born of the sea.“

—  Algernon Charles Swinburne, livro Poems and Ballads
Poems and Ballads (1866-89), The Triumph of Time, Context: The loves and hours of the life of a man, They are swift and sad, being born of the sea. Hours that rejoice and regret for a span, Born with a man's breath, mortal as he; Loves that are lost ere they come to birth, Weeds of the wave, without fruit upon earth. I lose what I long for, save what I can, My love, my love, and no love for me!
