I was ashamed of you. I despised you
As the place of my nativity.

Edgar Lee Masters: David Matlock

Except as it swarms in the sun-light of youth,
Strengthening its wings on what has been gathered,
And tasting, on the way to the hive
From the clover field, the delicate spoil.

Deciding cases on the points the lawyers scored,
Not on the right of the matter.
