more fire and hemlock

Whatever will I do without Diana Wynne Jones?

"'Oh I see!' said Polly. 'NOWHERE! That's clever!' She moved sideways to look round the curve of the vases and found they still said NOWHERE, though this was because the left-hand vase now seemed to say NOW and the right-hand one HERE from where she had moved to. Both vases really said NOWHERE, but the letters were so arranged on them that you could never see the whole word at once on the same vase. Polly made sure, by going right up to them, ducking under Mr. Lynn's arm, and putting her head sideways to see the letters round the other side."
