    • POEM: An Irish Airman Forsees His Death by William Butler Yeats (4/1/2009 6:30:00 PM)

      By far my favourte poem...
      The recurring theme of balance and temperence- classic Yeats and beautifully written in the thoughtful-dream like fashion.
      Entrancing and prophetic for such a short poem. It has made me think on many occasions- What is the nature of choice? Is it possible to balance all? Is death really so predictable and simple?

    • POEM: Alone by Edgar Allan Poe (4/1/2009 3:07:00 AM)

      'A demon in my view'
      This poem is beautiful, and haunting. Surely Poe's feelings of indifference were not so severe that 'all (he) loved, (he) loved alone'?
      I read this poem at my high school graduation to a great reception. Apparently more people comprehend this lonliness than I thought.
