  • "Down, down I come like a glist'ring Phaeton..."
    --Richard II, William Shakespeare

    (I haven't checked today, but I'm fairly certain my version has it spelled without that second H. Weird. And, interestingly, phaeton is a kind of chariot or carriage. So... I guess it would make sense either way.)
