CINNA THE POET

I dreamt tonight that I did feast with Caesar,
And things unlucky charge my fantasy.
I have no will to wander forth of doors,
Yet something leads me forth.

NCIAN HTE OPTE

I aedmerd lats ngith that I sdefeat wiht eCrsaa, dan lukcuyn ssgin lhvrdweemeo my mnaonitagii. I hvea no edrsei to go udteosi, yet msohntgei dleas me rehet.
