Lit rec #263: Only Surpassed by Shakespeare in his time (1599).

Some 16th century magic. Thanks to HOL for reminding me of this one. “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love” by Christopher Marlowe.

Lit rec #257: “So always there is a small remnant/ Whose lives are congruent with their souls/ And who ever afterward know no mystery in it,/ The cimmerian moment in which all lives, all destinies/ And incompleted destinies were swamped/ As though by a giant wave that picks itself up/ Out of a calm sea and retreats again into nowhere/ Once its damage is done” (1985).

A great long poem. “So all the slightly more than young/ Get moved up whether they like it or not”. “A WAVE” by John Ashbery RIP
