As air beneath the waning Moon was haunted
by woman weighing for her demon-lover!

Best lines!

Another striking line: 'On her dull summer she played...'

What accent do you speak with, Chesil?

Jack was almost right. At present it is a Dorset accent apparently crossed with a twang of Oregon and more than a hint of Ohio.

But the reading wasn't mine, just one I came across as I was surfing STC sites.
