"I would build that dome in air, That sunny dome!  those caves of ice!  And all who heard should see them there, And all should cry Beware!   Beware!  His flashing eyes, his floating hair!  Weave a circle round him thrice, And close your eyes with holy dread, For he on honeydew hath fed,  And drunk the milk of Paradise."

- Samuel Taylor Coleridge,  from Kubla Khan, 1798.
