"Hail, Brünnhilde, radiant star! Hail, Siegfried, victorious light! Hail, resplendent love! Hail, resplendent life!" Richard Wagner - Der Ring Des Nibelungen: Götterdämmerung, circa 31:13 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaUIz81vtLo

There once was a man named Charleston
He was sure his rivals would succumb
He very much wished to debate
But he did not anticipate
All his would-be opponents would run
