„The couch was for sleep at the end of exhausting days. I confided in her less often. Perhaps that is the fate of all marriages.“

—  Nick Drake (poet) British writer 1961

Ch 8
The Rahotep series, Book 3: Egypt: The Book of Chaos (2011)
Contexto: A little distance had opened between us, almost unnoticed, rarely acknowledged. We made love infrequently. The couch was for sleep at the end of exhausting days. I confided in her less often. Perhaps that is the fate of all marriages.

And time seemed but the vassal of my will,

„What if there be a fated day
When the Faery Isle shall pass away,
And its beautiful groves and fountains seem
The myths of a long, delicious dream!“

—  Edmund Clarence Stedman American poet, critic, and essayist 1833 - 1908

"Elfin Song" (1850).
Contexto: What if there be a fated day
When the Faery Isle shall pass away,
And its beautiful groves and fountains seem
The myths of a long, delicious dream!
A century's joys shall first repay
Our hearts, for the evil of that day;
And the Elfin-King has sworn to wed
A daughter of Earth, whose child shall be,
By cross and water hallowe'd,
From the fairies' doom forever free.
What if there be a fated day!
It is far away! it is far away!
Maiden, fair Maiden, I, who sing
Of this summer isle am the island King.
