    Who then is she,
    She holding me? The people’s sea drives on her,
    Drives out the father from the caesared camp;
    The dens of shape
    Shape all her whelps with the long voice of water,
    That she I have,
    The country-handed grave boxed into love....
    —Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    It was a Sunday afternoon, wet and cheerless; and a duller spectacle this earth of ours has not to show than a rainy Sunday in London.
