Other remarks:

“The silver swan, who living had no note,
When death approached unlocked her silent throat.
Leaning her breast upon the reedy shore,
She sang her first and last and sang no more:
“Farewell all joys! O death come close mine eyes!
More geeses than swans now live, more fools than wise.”
