T.S. Elliot – The Four Quartets

Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future,
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.
What might have been is an abstraction
Remaining a perpetual possibility
Only in a world of speculation.
What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present

                                                                Burnt Norton

Came across this rather nicely presented Four Quartets website, which is more enjoyable to read simply because of the colours and layout. The link is also in the blogroll under poetry.

By the way, 3 Quarks is putting up poetry nowadays. Here Frost’s Birches.
