"Anthem" by Leonard Cohen

"The birds they sang at the break of day
Start again, I heard them say
Don't dwell on what has passed away
or what has yet to be...

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in"

"When distant Tweed is heard to rave,
And owlet to hoot o'er the dead man's grave,
Then go - but go alone the while-
Then view St. David's ruined pile;
And home returning, soothly swear;
Was ever scene so sad and fair;"

----by Sir Walter Scott "Lay of the Last Minstrel"
