William Robert Rodgers quotes- 7 of
No bones made, bans laid, or boons expected,
No contracts, entails, hereditaments,
In that land all Is and nothing's Ought;

But I, being man, can kiss
And bed-spread-eagle too;
this is the night, and this the happy time
When the tinned milk of human kindness is
Upheld and holed by radio-appeal.
Punctually at Christmas the soft plush
Of sentiment snows down, embosoms all
The sharp and pointed shapes of venom,
And the member for the constituency
Feeds the five thousand, and has plenty back.
Over the stark plain
The stilted mill-chimneys once again spread
