This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.


T. S. Eliot, The Hollow Men

WindLight by Torley Linden

See this in original size, or large size at the least, to get the look of sadness and despair on my face properly; it just shows up here in the page size.  I had to go through a lot of poses to get past the haute couture stuff, which would not be appropriate for this composition.

Thank you very much!  To be truthful, I haven't paid much attention to Eliot outside of Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats and the one piece (can't remember what the title was now) that was the inspiration for "Memory."  Frost has always been a favorite of the 20th-century poets, though.  (I wonder if Frost and Eliot would see eye to eye.)

If poetry is an interest, check out Garrison Keillor's The Writer's Almanac.  It's both on public radio stations that buy it, and in Web form for those who want the printed version.  Several anniversaries and birthdays every day, and a poem.  (Some of the poems used have been featured in the Good Poems collections edited by Keillor.)
