Excerpt from Select Essays and Poems
Melodious knife, and thou, harmonious sand Touched by the poet scourer's rugged hand.

There is a story that the aspiring poet and one of his brothers took turns in wearing the overcoat that was their joint possession, and that they read Greek in so cold a room that ever afterwards they associated Plato with the smell of woolen wraps.
