Roger Zelazny Poetry Month 2015: Day 15

Since I'm being a little more experimental than previously with this year's Zelazny poetry month, today I'll be offering a piece neither by Zelazny, nor about one of his works, but instead used by him to preface Jack of Shadows. It's just a two line rhyming couplet from the Merchant of Venice, but I always thought it encapsulated the theme of the story so well.

Some there be that shadows kiss.
Such have but a shadow’s bliss.
