... who, alas, can love and then be wise?

And Julia sate with Juan, half embraced
And half retiring from the glowing arm,
Which trembled like the bosom where 't was placed;
Yet still she must have thought there was no harm,
Or else 't were easy to withdraw her waist;
But then the situation had its charm,
And then -- -- God knows what next -- I can't go on;
I'm almost sorry that I e'er begun.
-- fra Lord Byrons Don Juan. Jeg har en kritisk anmeldelse av den norske gjendiktningen her.
