Lost in a Haunted Wood

The lights must never go out,
The music must always play,
Lest we should see where we are –
Lost in a haunted wood;
Children afraid of the dark
Who have never been happy or good.

George Orwell – “Pleasure Spots” (taken from the introduction to Paul Tillich’s The Courage to Be)
