Now I'm just getting all excited about eternal constructions.
Care to elaborate? (And put some more meat on the table in regards to these "eternal constructions"). My appetite has been whet.
Just thinking about these fabulous immortal poems!
Hahah. That's the problem with an overly lateral mind. That which is plain and obvious and right before one's eyes is often missed altogether!
Immortal poems concerned with immortality.
Can you post us a nice poem?
Over hill, over dale, Thorough bush, thorough brier, Over park, over pale, Thorough flood, thorough fire! I do wander everywhere, Swifter than the moon's sphere; And I serve the Fairy Queen, To dew her orbs upon the green; The cowslips tall her pensioners be; In their gold coats spots you see; Those be rubies, fairy favours; In those freckles live their savours; I must go seek some dewdrops here, And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear. A Fairy Song, Shakespear.
...and hang a pearl in every cowslips ear That's beautiful how do you know if is immortal more specifically, is there a definition of time period...just wandering 'cos I'm not sure what do look for. Doh, Ohh I think I get,....eternal constructions, immortal concerns poems that deal with immortality (or mortality), or their themes do. ..and not generally of the contemporary type. or maybe it means poems that have gained 'immortal' status?? Invisible are you also at all interested in contemporary poems that deal with the same subject matter, or not so much?
How Heavy the Days Are How heavy the days are there's not a fire that can warm me, not a sun to laugh with me, everything bare, everything cold and merciless, and even the beloved, clear stars look desolately down, since I learnt in my heart that love can die. Hermann Hesse
It's important but students should choose if they're interested in learning about these things.
