"Swear by the locust, by dragonflies on ferns, by the minnow's flash, the tremble of a breast, by the new earth spongy under our feet: that as we grow old, we will not grow evil, that although our garden seeps with sewage, and our elders think it's up for auction -- swear by this dazzle that does not wish to leave us -- that we will be keepers of a garden, nonetheless." --John Balaban from "In Celebration of Spring"
