Denies he shall for ever sate his dearth
Like wolf or tiger; wills such futile might
Anon be banned and thrust from off the good round earth.

With a golden girdle of glory,

As a wolf lurks for a strayed white lamb?

And the deep of night is hoary!

Plunge into yonder gulf?
A golden beaker I fling in it—there!
The black mouth swallows it like a wolf!
Who brings me the cup again, whoever,
It is his own—he may keep it for ever!"
"The Diver" by George MacDonald
