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

    (in context)

And another good thought from J$$$: “[G]ive the people what they want.” To which I might add, “just make sure they want poetry!” Ha!

There won’t be another Daily Poem or Thoreau until Tuesday.

Enjoy my long weekend!

Poem: When I am dead, my dearest, by Christina Rossetti
