...er all is said and done, 
Tell but a wilder game that was begun, 
When Fate, the mistress of iniquities, 
The mad Queen-spinner of all discrepancies,
Beguiled the dyers of the dawn that day, 
And even in such a curst and sodden way 
Made my three colors one. 
—So be it, and the way be as of old: 
So be the weary truth again retold
Of great kings overthrown 
Because they would be kings, and lastly kings alone.

By paths coincident 
On being anon twin halves of one august event,

by von Goethe, Johann Wolfgang
...As I calmly sat and span,

Toiling with all zeal,
Lo! a young and handsome man

Pass'd my spinning-wheel.

And he praised,--what harm was there?--

Sweet the things he said--
Praised my flax-resembling hair,

And the even thread.

He with this was not content,

But must needs do more;
And in twain the thread was rent,

Though 'twas safe before....Read more of this...
