    Enough if the work has seemed,
    So did she your strength renew,
    A dream that a lion had dreamed
    Till the wilderness cried aloud.

    SWEENEY:
    Nothing to eat but the fruit as it grows.
    Nothing to see but the palmtrees one way
    And the sea the other way,
    Nothing to hear but the sound of the surf.
    Nothing at all but three things
    DORIS: What things?
    SWEENEY: Birth, and copulation, and death.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
