„Half-buried to her flaming breast
In this bright tree, she makes her nest,
Hundred-sunned Phoenix! when she must
Crumble at length to hoary dust!“

„Her feet beneath her petticoat
Like little mice stole in and out,
As if they feared the light;
But oh, she dances such a way!
No sun upon an Easter-day
Is half so fine a sight.“

—  John Suckling English poet 1609 - 1642

Ballad upon a Wedding. Compare: "Her pretty feet, like snails, did creep A little out, and then, As if they played at bo-peep, Did soon draw in again", Robert Herrick, To Mistress Susanna Southwell.

And, like the sun, they shine on all alike.“

„The sun has spurned his flower and let her wilt.
The flower's wilted, as the sun won't shine.
Wilted, she drops her petals by the wall—
I've often watched them drop on dew-cold nights.“

—  Đặng Trần Côn writer 1710 - 1745

Original: (vi) Bóng dương để hoa vàng chẳng đoái,
Hoa để vàng vì tại bóng dương.
Hoa vàng hoa rụng quanh tường,
Trải xem hoa rụng đêm sương mấy lần.
Quelle: Chinh phụ ngâm, Lines 305–308
