"A pleasing land of drowsy head it was,
Of dreams that wave before the half-shut eye;
And of gay castles in the clouds that pass,
Forever flushing round a summer sky."
-- The Castle of Indolence, James Thomson, 1748, quoted by Washington Irving in the opening lines of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, 1820
