„There is one story and one story only
That will prove worth your telling“

—  Robert Graves English poet and novelist 1895 - 1985

"To Juan at the Winter Solstice" from Poems 1938-1945 (1946).
Contexto: There is one story and one story only
That will prove worth your telling,
Whether as learned bard or gifted child;
To it all lines or lesser guards belong
That startle with their shining
Such common stories as they stray into.
