    Something in me wanted to find out how far I could run without stopping.
    Jacki Hanson (b. 1948)

    Sweet Thames, run softly, till I end my song.
    The river bears no empty bottles, sandwich papers,
    Silk handkerchiefs, cardboard boxes, cigarette ends
    Or other testimony of summer nights. The nymphs are departed.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
