Don Juan 04-106
Canto the Fourth
Yet there will still be bards: though fame is smoke,
 Its fumes are frankincense to human thought;
And the unquiet feelings, which first woke
 Song in the world, will seek what then they sought;
As on the beach the waves at last are broke,
 Thus to their extreme verge the passions brought
Dash into poetry, which is but passion,
Or at least was so ere it grew a fashion.

George Gordon Byron, Lord Byron (1788-1824)
