    Virginia,
    Earth’s only paradise.
    —Michael Drayton (1563–1631)

    the old palaces, the wallets of the tourists,
    the Common Market or the smart cafés,
    the boulevards in the graceful evening,
    the cliff-hangers, the scientists,
    and the little shops raising their prices
    mean nothing to me.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
