I can feel a lover's breath
I sleep in the kitchen with my feet in the hall

„The eons came and the eons fled
And the sleep that wrapped us fast
Was riven away in a newer day
And the night of death was past.“

—  Langdon Smith, Evolution

Evolution (1895; 1909)
Kontext: Yet happy we lived and happy we loved,
And happy we died once more;
Our forms were rolled in the clinging mold
Of a Neocomian shore.
The eons came and the eons fled
And the sleep that wrapped us fast
Was riven away in a newer day
And the night of death was past.
