„When you were a tadpole and I was a fish
In the Paleozoic time“

—  Langdon Smith, Evolution

Evolution (1895; 1909)
Contexto: When you were a tadpole and I was a fish
In the Paleozoic time,
And side by side on the ebbing tide
We sprawled through the ooze and slime,
Or skittered with many a caudal flip
Through the depths of the Cambrian fen,
My heart was rife with the joy of life,
For I loved you even then.
