“Shee said, Lullabye, my owne deere child!
Lullabye, deere child, deere!
I wold thy father were a king,

And be of good cheere, I thee pray,
And the bridall and the churching both,

“People nowadays like to be together not in the old-fashioned way of, say, mingling on the piazza of an Italian Renaissance city, but, instead, huddled together in traffic jams, bus queues, on escalators and so on. Its a new kind of togetherness which may seem totally alien, but its the togetherness of modern technology.”
—J.G. (James Graham)
