    All things are lawful there that may delight
    Nature or unrestrained appetite.
    Like and enjoy, to will and act is one;
    We only sin when love’s rites are not done.
    —Thomas Carew (1589–1639)

    Deep with the first dead lies London’s daughter,
    Robed in the long friends,
    The grains beyond age, the dark veins of her mother,
    Secret by the unmourning water
    Of the riding Thames.
    After the first death, there is no other.
    —Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
