The Daily…ish

Poetry and Miscellany

  • Poem

    Men say they know many things;
    But lo! they have taken wings—
    The arts and sciences,
    And a thousand appliances;
    The wind that blows
    Is all that any body knows.

    ~ Henry David Thoreau

Today’s poem is another from one of the giants. Today’s Thoreau is actualy an entry from a February 27th, because I didn’t love what I found for today’s date enough. And, I figured I missed yesterday anyway, so it’s all good.

I like this discussion on the relevance of poetry that is (slowly) evolving at LitSpace.

As an aside, I almost chose this poem for today’s Daily.

Poem: If I can stop one heart from breaking, by Emily Dickenson
