Pope in his grotto
It's clever, but is it art?
(This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time.)
Since hamsterwoman has mentioned in reference to my recent death-admonishing poetry post, and since I've been intending to post it, here's an even more beautiful -- and much more terrible -- poem about death: Phillip Larkin's AubadeCollapse )

It feels a bit cheap even to try to comment on this poem; what is there possibly to add, or to say about it that isn't simply a reiteration of it in wordier, less-perfect terms?Collapse )
