"I have measured out my life with coffee spoons"

It's Friday. Time to experience the power of language.

Read all of T. S. Eliot's "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock."

And be sure to read it aloud.


Richard (Rick) Georges said...

One of my favorites. "Let us go then, you and I, when the evening is spread out against the sky", like a patient etherised upon a table."

"In the room the women come and go, talking of Michelangelo".

"I grow old, I grow old. I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled".

It should be read often if only as a reminder of the power of language.
