  • Shapes that wax pale and shift in swift strange wise,
    Voice faces with unspeculative eyes,
    Dim things that gaze and glare, dead mouths that move,
    Featureless heads discrowned of hate and love,
    Mockeries and masks of motion and mute breath,
    Leavings of life, the superflux of death—
    —Swinburne, Tristram of Lyonesse
