„I take this cadence from a man named Yeats:
I take it and I give it back again:
For other tunes and other wanton beats
Have tossed my heart and fiddled through my brain.
Yes, I was dancing mad, and how
That came to be the bears and Yeats would know.“
— Theodore Roethke, The Waking
The Waking (1953), "Four for Sir John Davies," ll. 19-24
