„And homeless near a thousand homes I stood,
And near a thousand tables pined and wanted food.“

—  William Wordsworth English Romantic poet 1770 - 1850

Guilt and Sorrow, st. 41 (1791-1794) Section XLI.
Contexto: And oft I thought (my fancy was-so strong)
That I, at last, a resting-place had found:
'Here: will I dwell,' said I,' my whole life long,
Roaming the illimitable waters round;
Here will I live, of all but heaven disowned.
And end my days upon the peaceful flood—
To break my dream the vessel reached its bound;
And homeless near a thousand homes I stood,
And near a thousand tables pined and wanted food.
