[from Collected Works, T.E.Brown]

THE fashions change, for change is dear to men.
" ... "
Opined the Greek who had the widest ken :—
" Change of all things that be
Is sweetest." Yet since Leda's egg swans strive
To innovate no curvature on that,
And gannets dive as Noah saw them dive
O'er sunken Ararat.
