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

I’m a Horrible Blogger, I Know

No new “daily… ish” content today. Not much of anything so far this week, obviously, but things are busy, and that’s that.

As I enjoy thinking about the purpose of art (and poetry in particular), I found this post a pretty fine read. He seems rather down on some things Homeric, but it’s a good take on The Iliad and Troy, nonetheless.
