    Seems familiar, and yet an appropriate poem... I love the way it starts: "On the day the world ends / A bee circles a clover,"

    Interesting, Shakespeare invoking Philomel as did Eliot in The Wasteland hundreds of years later with tersely contrasting style. The "Lulla, lulla, lullaby; lulla, lulla, lullaby!" grated a bit on me a bit but then I hearkened back to Eliot's "Weialala leia / Wallala leialala / ... Weialala leia / Wallala leialala / ... la la", though not in the same context.

    Could Eliot be making a reference to Shakespeare's song? Im not sure, but if I remember it rightly this is the song that puts fairy Queen Titania to sleep in "A Summer Night's Dream", therefore the lullabying.

    Lol! A sharp Z poem!

    Possibly... will have to delve deeper. Here is one reference to Eliot and Shakespeare that doesn't answer the question... http://theshakespeareblog.com/2014/0...d-shakespeare/

    Thanks for the link, tailor, it shows anyway that Eliot was influenced by Shakespeare.

    In The Wasteland Eliot called upon, or alluded to, many literary works. Being not nearly literary literate as Eliot, I was lost without all my study in another thread.

    Lovely poem by MJC... I read it once then reread it personalizing it from a story my Mother told me just before she died whereas she went walkabout, truant with her dog in the English countryside as a young girl
