James Kenneth Stephen quotes- 5 of
Birthdays? yes, in a general way;
For the most if not for the best of men:
Will there never come a season
Which shall rid us from the curse
Quite unacquainted with the ABC
Than write such hopeless rubbish as thy worst.
And one is of an old half-witted sheep
Which bleats articulate monotony,
And, Wordsworth, both are thine: at certain times
Forth from the heart of thy melodious rhymes.
