  • You gave me wings to fly; / Then took away the sky.

    • Leonora Speyer,
    • "Reproach," Fiddler's Farewell ()
  • Let not my death be long, / But light / As a bird's swinging; / Happy decision in the height / Of song — / Then flight / From off the ultimate bough! / And let my wing be strong, / And my last note the first / Of another's singing. / See to it, Thou!
