All is but toys; renown and grace is dead; The wine of life is drawn, and the mere lees Is left this vault to brag of.
IT makes no difference abroad, The seasons fit the same, The mornings blossom into noons, And split their pods of flame. Wild-flowers kindle in the woods, The brooks brag all the day; No blackbird bates his jargoning For passing Calvary. Auto-da-fé and judgment Are nothing to the bee; His separation from his rose To him seems misery.
I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart: I am, I am, I am.Sylvia Plath
Why should the brave Spanish soldiers brag? The sunne never sets in the Spanish dominions, but ever shineth on one part or other we have conquered for our king.
The Dutch may havetheir Holland, the Spaniard have his Spain, TheYankee to the south of us must south of us remain; For not a man dare lift a hand against the men who brag That they were born in Canada beneath the British flag.
