Sleeper, golden heap of shade and surrender,
your formidable rest is laden with such boons...
Paul Valery, La Dormeuse, translated by C.F. MacIntyre
6/8/10: I was surprised to find these lines in a book entitled French Symbolist Poetry*, a week after posting this digital collage (made, as usual, on Polyvore), so I came back to add them. Had I read them earlier, I would've incorporated them in the piece. On the other hand, how delightfully serendipitous to discover them after the fact!
