But at my back I always hear
Time's winged chariot hurrying near.

ANDREW MARVELL, To His Coy Mistress

For Fate with jealous eye does see
Two perfect loves, nor lets them close;
Their union would her ruin be,
And her tyrannic power depose.

ANDREW MARVELL, The Definition of Love

My Love is of a birth as rare
As 'tis, for object, strange and high;
It was begotten by Despair,
Upon Impossibility.

ANDREW MARVELL, The Definition of Love

Thy beauty shall no more be found,
Nor, in thy marble vault, shall sound
My echoing song: then worms shall try
That long preserved virginity,
And your quaint honour turn to dust,
And into ashes all my lust:
The grave's a fine and private place,
But none, I think, do there embrace.

ANDREW MARVELL, "To His Coy Mistress"
