„Here's the lily, here the rose
Her full chalice shall disclose;
Here's narcissus wet with dew,
Windflower and the violet blue.
Wear the garland I have made;
Crowned with it, put pride away;
For the wreath that blooms must fade;
Thou thyself must fade some day, Rhodocleia.“

—  Maurice Baring, "The Garland", from Orpheus in Mayfair and Other Stories and Sketches.

„This is the dead land
This is cactus land
Here the stone images
Are raised, here they receive
The supplication of a dead man's hand
Under the twinkle of a fading star.
[…]
The eyes are not here
There are no eyes here
In this valley of dying stars
In this hollow valley“
