The river's tent is broken: the last fingers of leaf
By the waters of Leman I sat down and wept . . .
At the violet hour, when the eyes and back
She turns and looks a moment in the glass,
“This music crept by me upon the waters”
The river sweats
Elizabeth and Leicester
"Trams and dusty trees.
"My feet are at Moorgate, and my heart
To Carthage then I came
 V. Spenser, Prothalamion.
 Cf. Day, Parliament of Bees:
 I do not know the origin of the ballad from which these lines are taken: it was reported to me from Sydney, Australia.
[Mrs. Porter was a madame of a Cairo brothel and she and her daughter were well known to Australian troops who created new (risque) lyrics to a popular ragtime song. (Infoplease Editors)]
 Bicarbonate of soda, or sodium bicarbonate [i.e., baking soda] (Infoplease Editors)
 And, O these voices of children singing in the cupola! (Infoplease Editors)
V. Verlaine, Parsifal.
 The currants were quoted at a price "carriage and insurance free to London"; and the Bill of Lading etc. were to be handed to the buyer upon payment of the sight draft.
“Carriage and insurance free” — “cost, insurance and freight” (Editor).
 Tiresias, although a mere spectator and not indeed a "character," is yet the most important personage in the poem, uniting all the rest. Just as the one-eyed merchant, seller of currants, melts into the Phoenician Sailor, and the latter is not wholly distinct from Ferdinand Prince of Naples, so all the women are one woman, and the two sexes meet in Tiresias. What Tiresias sees, in fact, is the substance of the poem. The whole passage from Ovid is of great anthropological interest:
 This may not appear as exact as Sappho's lines, but I had in mind the "longshore" or "dory" fisherman, who returns at nightfall.
 V. Goldsmith, the song in The Vicar of Wakefield.
 The interior of St. Magnus Martyr is to my mind one of the finest among Wren's interiors. See The Proposed Demolition of Nineteen City Churches (P. S. King & Son, Ltd.).
 The Song of the (three) Thames-daughters begins here. From line 292 to 306 inclusive they speak in turn. (V. Gutterdsammerung, III. i: the Rhine-daughters.)
 V. Froude, Elizabeth, Vol. I, ch. iv, letter of De Quadra to Philip of Spain:
 V. St. Augustine's Confessions: "to Carthage then I came, where a cauldron of unholy loves sang all about mine ears."
