William Shakespeare :
Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more, Men were deceivers ever, One foot in sea and one on shore, To one thing constant never: Then sigh not so, but let them go, And be you blithe and bonny, Converting all your sounds of woe Into Hey nonny, nonny.
[William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British dramatist, poet. Balthasar, in Much Ado About Nothing, act 2, sc. 3, l. 62-9. One of Shakespeare's best-known songs.]

William Gass :
Initially, between the trees, he caught sight of whirling, jumping bodies. Heya-hey-heya. Someone climbing. Rocks pitched after a board; and on the river, tilting patches of reflection. Heya-fulla-heya-heya. Boys were sliding down the bank on their buttocks, roughing the scaly sand. They sailed a can lid on the water where at first it turned, floating, then sank, burning like a mirror. Hiyah-smilah. Hee-mee? Coltch. Skirts rose slowly, slowly subsided. A parasol flew open with a snap. Or-rawk. Gah. Houf. Half buried in the shingle, a deep red brick was then awash. Yo-yo giggy. Teetoo Sheek? Num! Lissa-lissa. A willow leaned out, trailing its leaves in the water.
[William Gass (b. 1924), U.S. fictionist, essayist, philosopher. "The Reverend Jethro Furber's Change of Heart," ch. 1, p. 69, Omensetter's Luck (1966). "Reverend Jethro Furber" watches townsfolk at play on a Sunday.]
