So here I am again…post midterm..post presentation..atleast that is done!
The other day I was rereading my favorite book again..”The Ordinary People” , it begins with sonnet by Edna St. Millay which spurred me to find more of her poetry , which I think is now amongst my favorites!
But what a shining animal is man,
Who knows, when pain subsides, that is not that,
For worse than that must follow — yet can write
Music; can laugh; play tennis; even plan.
THis is what begins the book, and I love it because it speaks volumes about what I believe in, you can make it, through everything that you never thought u’d survive you will make it through…I am sure though that my friends who are better at English lit than me may disagree but I like what i think..so there!
another one…I ont interpret this one to death!
What lips my lips have kissed, and where, and why,
I have forgotten, and what arms have lain Under my head till morning;
but the rain Is full of ghosts tonight,
that tap and sigh Upon the glass and listen for reply,
And in my heart there stirs a quiet pain
For unremembered lads that not again
Will turn to me at midnight with a cry.
Thus in winter stands the lonely tree,
Nor knows what birds have vanished one by one,
Yet knows its boughs more silent than before:
I cannot say what loves have come and gone,
I only know that summer sang in me A little while,
that in me sings no more.
Hey I can be morbid too!
to end on a cheerful note but a similar note..here is a favorite quote..dunno who said it where but it has stuck with me a long time now!
“your absense has gone thorugh my life like needle through thread, everything i do is stiched with its colors”
nah Im not pining..I just like imagery and it is from a time when I was pining…but no more colored stiching, just me in black and white!
