A Pretty Pass

“Things have come to a pretty pass,
Our romance has grown flat,
‘Cause you like this and the other,
And I go for this and that.
Goodness knows what the end will be,
Oh, I don’t know where I’m at,
It’s plain to see we two will never make one,
Something must be done.”

“You say either, and I say either,
You say neither, and I say neither,
Either, either, Neither, neither,
Oh, let’s call the whole thing off.”

Caliban

Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises,
Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.(not hurt)
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears; and sometime voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again; and then in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open, and show riches
Ready to drop upon me, that when I waked
I cried to dream again.

Infernal Dance

And in my dreams I see myself on a wolf’s back
Riding along a forest path
To do battle with a sorcerer-tsar (Kaschei)
In that land where a princess sits under lock and key,
Pining behind massive walls.
There gardens surround a palace all of glass;
There Firebirds sing by night
And peck at golden fruit.

Arborialis Horizontalis

The wind may have blown it over but there it is still hangin’ on by a skelf.
