14 - Sea waves are green and wet,

But up from where they die,

Rise others vaster yet,

And those are brown and dry.
They are the sea made land
To come at the fisher town,
And bury in solid sand
The men she could not drown.

She may know cove and cape,
But she does not know mankind
If by any change of shape,
She hopes to cut off mind.

Men left her a ship to sink:
They can leave her a hut as well;
And be but more free to think
For the one more cast-off shell.

- Robert Frost Sand Dunes

30 – When you are old and gray and full of sleep

And nodding by the fire, take down this book,

And slowly read, and dream of the soft look

Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,

And loved your beauty with false love or true;

But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,

And loved the sorrows of your changing faces

And bending down beside the glowing bars,

Murmur, a little sadly, how love fled

And paced upon the mountains overhead,

And his his face amid a crowd of stars.”

- W. B. Yeats When You Are Old.
