Life and Songs.

For the first time in my life, I have read a book of poetry all in one go, cover to cover.

Thank you, Ted Hughes, for writing 'Crow'.

Beautiful, silly, raw, epic, outrageous, raging, intimate: a treasure.

One of my favorite passages:
Man awoke being dragged across the grass.
Woman awoke to see him coming.
Neither knew what had happened.

God went on sleeping.

Crow went on laughing.


(From 'A Childish Prank')
