” Oh, to awake from dreaming…………………Let me pull myself out of these waters. But
they heap themselves on me; they sweep me in between their great shoulders; I am turned;
I am tumbled; I am stretched, among these long lights, these long waves, these endless paths,
with people pursuing, pursuing…..”
Virginia Woolf. The Waves
“Come be my love in the wet woods come,
Where the boughs rain when it blows….”

escaping? In the wild house? Everything–

“It was a breath of wind that twisting your great hair
brought forth strange rumors to your dreaming head.”
” I have so fiercely dreamed of you,
And walked so far and spoken of you so,
Loved a shade of you so hard..”
