The twilight is sad and cloudy, The wind blows wild and free, And like the wings of sear-birds Hash the white caps of the sea.
And all their lives, like that, they'll have to rush Forwards in reverse, always holding their caps.Douglas Eaglesham Dunn
It is little I repair to the matches of the Southron folk, Though my own red roses there may blow; It is little I repair to the matches of the Southron folk, Though the red roses crest the caps, I know.

They threw their caps As they would hang them on the horns o' the moon, Shouting their emulation.william shakespeare
