bel canto quotes

Cependant, ce fut jadis un bel homme, de haute taille.
I sang a canto in a canton,
Cunning-coo, O, cuckoo cock,
A spade is not a spade, and it is just
That any tremulous twisting of her lips
Even innocence itself has many a wile,
And will not dare to trust itself with truth,
I don't choose to say much upon this head,
I'm a plain man, and in a single station,
Thou shalt not set up Wordsworth, Coleridge, Southey;
Because the first is crazed beyond all hope,
Ambition was my idol, which was broken
Before the shrines of Sorrow, and of Pleasure;
And if his passions now and then outran
Discretion, and were not so peaceable
If ever I should condescend to prose,
I'll write poetical commandments, which
Was married, charming, chaste, and twenty-three.
