„Some old man memory jumps to a child
— Spark from the days of energy.
And the child hoards it like a bitter toy.“

—  Stephen Spender English poet and man of letters 1909 - 1995

"Fall of a City"
Selected Poems (1941)
Kontext: All the lessons learned, unlearned;
The young, who learned to read, now blind
Their eyes with an archaic film;
The peasant relapses to a stumbling tune
Following the donkey`s bray;
These only remember to forget. But somewhere some word presses
On the high door of a skull and in some corner
Of an irrefrangible eye
Some old man memory jumps to a child
— Spark from the days of energy.
And the child hoards it like a bitter toy.

"The few locks which are left you are grey;
You are hale, Father William—a hearty old man:
Now tell me the reason, I pray."“
