    I ‘gin to be aweary of the sun,
    And wish th’ estate o’ the world were now undone.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Only when we break the mirror and climb into our vision,
    only when we are the wind together streaming and singing,
    only in the dream we become with our bones for spears,
    we are real at last
    and wake.
    Marge Piercy (b. 1936)
