Medea - Evelyn de Morgan
1889

“ The head alone is able to burst into flame, on contact
with hard reality. ”

Francis Ponge, “L’Allumette / The Match,” Poetry (SEPTEMBER 1952). (via literarymiscellany) ─

“ I think of how the mystics read
by the light of their own bodies.
What a world of darkness that must have been
to read by the flaming hearts
that turn into heaps of ash on the alter,
how everything in the end is made
equal by the wind. ”

─ Timothy Liu, excerpt from “Vox Angelica”; published in The New Young American Poets. (via betheyogurt) ─

Sailing to Byzantium

BY WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS


That is no country for old men. The youngIn one another’s arms, birds in the trees,—Those dying generations—at their song,The salmon-falls, the mackerel-crowded seas,Fish, flesh, or fowl, commend all summer longWhatever is begotten, born, and dies.Caught in that sensual music all neglectMonuments of unageing intellect.
