In high school my AP English teacher was phenomenal. Passionate, creative, etc. She had us do some analyses with "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by T.S. Eliot. When she spoke at our graduation she used the quote "do I dare disturb the universe?"
The poem has always been a go to for me. Today the lines about coffee spoons were stuck in my head so I decided to pull up the poem. I also found the translation to the lines at the beginning - not sure why I haven't done it before. After reading that & reading the work aloud to myself I am yet again reminded of how you can glean new meanings from things you thought you understood.
Are there any works that are close to your heart or you find yourself returning to them for some reason? I'd love to take a look at them!
I love the "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" and many other T.S. Eliot works,
I also love Carl Sandburg-especially this little gem;
Fog, by Carl Sandburg
The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
