    Let me see, what am I to buy for our sheep-shearing feast? Three pound of sugar, five pound of currants, rice—what will this sister of mine do with rice? But my father hath made her mistress of the feast, and she lays it on.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Let me see, what am I to buy for our sheep-shearing feast? Three pound of sugar, five pound of currants, rice—what will this sister of mine do with rice? But my father hath made her mistress of the feast, and she lays it on.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    He held the world upon his nose
    And this-a-way he gave a fling.
    His robes and symbols, ai-hi-hi
    And that-a-way he twirled the thing.
    Sombre as fir-trees, liquid cats
    Moved in the grass without a sound.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    And thus Snow White became the prince’s bride.
    The wicked queen was invited to the wedding feast
    and when she arrived there were
    red-hot iron shoes,
    in the manner of red-hot roller skates,
    clamped upon her feet.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
