by Emerson, Ralph Waldo
...ts, palaces, and parks,
And told the truant by his marks,
Golden curls, and quiver, and bow;—
This befell long ago.
Time and tide are strangely changed,
Men and manners much deranged;
None will now find Cupid latent
By this foolish antique patent.
He came late along the waste,
Shod like a traveller for haste,
With malice dared me to proclaim him,
That the maids and boys might name him.

Frocks, and blouses, capes, capôtes,

...rival thoughtful bending
O'er a stand with papers spread­
Motionless, his fingers plying 
That untired, unresting pen; 
Time and tide unnoticed flying,

by Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Happy, thrice happy, every one 
Who sees his labor well begun, 
And not perplexed and multiplied, 
By idly waiting for time and tide! 
And when the hot, long day was o'er, 
The young man at the Master's door

Removed beyond the evening chill, 
The father sat, and told them tales 
Of wrecks in the great September gales, 
Of pirates coasting the Spanish Main, 
And ships that never came back again,
