James Elroy Flecker
I have seen old ships sail like swans asleep.
Flecker quotes
And some to Meccah turn to pray, and I toward thy bed, Yasmin.
The poet's business is not to save the soul of man but to make it worth saving.

Flecker James Elroy quotes
When the great markets by the sea shut fast
All that calm Sunday that goes on and on:
When even lovers find their peace at last,
And Earth is but a star, that once had shone.
Flecker James Elroy
But have you wine and music still,
And statues and a bright-eyed love,
And foolish thoughts of good and ill,
And prayers to them who sit above?
