Do I dare to eat a peach?

S’io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s’i’odo il vero,
Senza tema d’infamia ti rispondo.

Let us go then, you and I,
When the evening is spread out against the sky
Like a patient etherized upon a table...

Oh wow - just wow - thank you Catchfire! One of my long ago favourite poems.

It seems so far away with the style and fashions of a distant past. But I'll take it for granted that the questions and facts presented have not yet lost their relevance. Do we have a modern day equivelent?
