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

I have too little time for blogging today. I will say this: the Simpsons’ rendition of Poe’s most popular poem is definitely on my short list of… poems… as rendered by the Simpsons…

Anyway, hopefully something more insightful tomorrow.

Poem: The Raven, by Edgar Allen Poe
Thoreau: March 13, 1853
