“When shall I dance once more with bare feet the all-night dances, tossing my head for joy in the damp the dew.. as a running fawn might frisk for the green joy of the wide fields, free from fear of the hunt, free from the circling beaters and the nets of woven mesh and the bunters hallooing on their yelping packs? And then, bard pressed, she sprints with the quickness of wind, bounding over the marsh, leaping to frisk, leaping for joy… to dance for joy in the forest, to dance where the darkness is deepest, where no man is.” – Euripides, Bacchae
