So full of fearful dreams, of ugly sights,
That, as I am a Christian faithful man,
I would not spend another such a night
Though twere to buy a world of happy days,
So full of dismal terror was the time.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“The river sweats
Oil and tar
The barges drift
With the turning tide”
