    We’ve become a race of Peeping Toms. What people oughta do is get outside their own house and look in for a change.
    —John Michael Hayes (b. 1919)

    Lingers upon your lips; and I have seen
    Firm, fixed forever in your closing eyes,
    The Corn King beckoning to his Spring Queen.
    Randall Jarrell (1914–1965)
