  • Mood:
  • Music:
Come away, and breathe fresh air!
Must we keep on and on
Sipping stale honey out of tiny cups
Decorated with golden tracery,
Drop by drop, all day long? We are alive;
We thirst-- Come away, plunge, and drink, and drown
In the great river flowing to the sea!

--Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand, Brian Hooker Translation
