If the dull substance of my flesh were thought,
Injurious distance should not stop my way;
For then despite of space I would be brought,
From limits far remote where thou dost stay.
No matter then although my foot did stand
Upon the farthest earth removed from thee;
For nimble thought can jump both sea and land
As soon as think the place where he would be.
But ah! thought kills me that I am not thought,
To leap large lengths of miles when thou art gone,
But that so much of earth and water wrought
I must attend time's leisure with my moan,
Receiving nought by elements so slow
But heavy tears, badges of either's woe.

Fantasy Dinner Party Guests

William Shakespeare: (Come on, with this domain name, did you think he wouldn't be there?). A moment in his presence would be divine. I'd love to listen to his tales of The Globe and Elizabethan society.
Livia Drusilla: Wife of the Roman Emperor Augustus, she has been popularised as a murderess. It would be interesting to find out if she really was a skilled poisoner, and as beautiful as was claimed.
Germaine Greer: Feminist literary critic. Outspoken and always controversial, she'd ensure the evening went with an intellectually stimulating bang.
Fred Astaire: So the evening could end with the last Waltz, impeccably danced.
