Lord Byron | a quote & a poem

George Gordon Byron, 6th Baron Byron, Lord Byron | by Richard Westall Born: January 22, 1788, Dover, United Kingdom | Died: April 19, 1824, Missolonghi, Greece

We of the craft (poets) are all crazy.
Some are affected by gaiety,
others by melancholy,
but all are more or less touched.”

― George Gordon Byron

Excerpt from ‘Don Juan’

“Between two worlds life hovers like a star,
‘Twixt night and morn, upon the horizon’s verge.
How little do we know that which we are!
How less what we may be! The eternal surge
Of time and tide rolls on, and bears afar
Our bubbles; as the old burst, new emerge,
Lash’d from the foam of ages; while the graves
Of Empires heave but like some passing waves.”

― George Gordon Byron, Don Juan
