From Auguries of Innocence

I read in a book1 that these four lines of verse from William Blake's Auguries of Innocence2 are considered by some the finest four lines of English literature. Well, I do not know about that, but they certainly do have an appeal to me in their Hermetic vision of the World:

Reward*

Nu caimanya síra ceante,
lorna en, titta liante.
Lintamaite, nahtumnenye,
ananta - pustanenye :
Ma ólane sen, ma eccoituvas
ar nómeo ilvanya sanuvas
saminde liarin oa laiquasses -
ar qualme – soryuvasses?
Se leptanen leryatas
imbi hwinde ar tasar tás.

Ece lyen were línerya,
olwallo olwanna avalerya
i níti miquis artuileo,
cilintillar luinin helleo.
Nai Rána asyuva eresserya
tantala sanen lind’ isilmeva.
Quie mornie úvuva endanyan
harmalyar lelyuvar inwissinyan
i marillaron elvie naltainen
ar laituvanyel annalyainen.

horse

Polilye quíta tulya i rocco i nenna, mal ual pole niritas yule.

You can take the horse to the water but you can't make it drink.

Middle-Earth variant: You can take the Dwarf to the barber but you can't make him shave.

rhetorics

How do you say in Quenya "Bloody spammers are trying to register on the site day after day and I must delete 3-4 newly registered bots every morning."?
