Lord Byron


I’ve seen your stormy seas and stormy women
And pity lovers rather more than seamen.

When Newton saw an apple fall, he found …
A mode of proving that the earth turnd round
In a most natural whirl, called gravitation;
And thus is the sole mortal who could grapple
Since Adam, with a fall or with an apple.

Friendship is Love without his wings!

L'Amite est l'amour sans ailes (1806)
