'Who are you?' said the Caterpillar. This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, 'I — I hardly know, sir, just at present — at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.' - Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

The fountain wears its icy dress, its mouth of poetry frozen in the dead of winter.  Stilled motion, No emotion… Waiting through the longest night For the fiery kiss of morning sun…

PIECECITOS Piececitos de niño, azulosos de frío, ¡cómo os ven y no os cubren, ¡Dios mío! ¡Piececitos heridos por los guijarros todos, ultrajados de nieves y lodos! El hombre ciego ignora que por donde pasáis, una flor de luz viva dejáis; que allí donde ponéis la plantita sangrante, el nardo nace más fragante. Piececitos de niño, dos joyitas sufrientes, ¡cómo pasan sin veros las gentes! -Gabriela Mistral
