And you, and you, bethou me as you blow,
When in my coppice you behold me be.

„Bethou him, you
And you, bethou him and bethou. It is
A sound like any other. It will end.“

Notes Toward a Supreme Fiction (1942), It Must Change
Contexto: Eye without lid, mind without any dream —These are of minstrels lacking minstrelsy,
Of an earth in which the first leaf is the tale
Of leaves, in which the sparrow is a birdOf stone, that never changes. Bethou him, you
And you, bethou him and bethou. It is
A sound like any other. It will end.

„Sparrow-hawks, Ma'am“

—  Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington British soldier and statesman 1769 - 1852

Queen Victoria, concerned about the sparrows that had nested in the roof of the partly finished Crystal Palace, asked Wellington's advice as to how to get rid of them. Wellington’s reply was succinct and to the point, Sparrow-hawks, Ma'am. He was right, by the time the Crystal Palace was opened by the Queen in 1851, they had all gone!

„Mourn, ye Graces and Loves, and all you whom the Graces love. My lady's sparrow is dead, the sparrow my lady's pet, whom she loved more than her own eyes.“

—  Gaio Valerio Catullo, list of poems by Catullus

III, lines 1–4
Lord Byron's translation:
Ye Cupids, droop each little head,
Nor let your wings with joy be spread:
My Lesbia's favourite bird is dead,
Whom dearer than her eyes she loved.
Original: (la) Lugete, O Veneres Cupidinesque,
Et quantum est hominum venustiorum.
Passer mortuus est meae puellae,
Passer, deliciae meae puellae.
