"Lovers, if Angels could understand them, might utter
strange things in the midnight air. For it seems that everything’s
trying to hide us. Look, the trees exist; the houses
we live in still stand where they were. We only
pass everything by like a transposition of air.
And all combines to suppress us, partly as shame,
perhaps, and partly as inexpressible hope."
