“The-Nile-is-the-longest-river-in-Africa-and-second…”

“Then which river is the longest, Tommy?”

Tommy burst into tears. “I don’t know,” he howls.

“For doors

are both frame and monument

to our spent time,

and too little

has been said

of our coming through and leaving by them.”

 

From “The Door”, Charles Tomlinson.

DAVID

Yon rising moon that looks for us again–

How oft hereafter will she wax and wane;

How oft hereafter rising look for us

Through this same Garden–and for one in vain!

 

And when like her, oh, Saki, you shall pass

Among the guests star-scatter’d on the Grass,

And in your joyous errand reach the spot

Where I made One–turn down an empty Glass!

 

The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, trans. Edward FitzGerald.

For David Lewis James, 1941-2012.
