    Wonderful poem: "Why do we treat the fleeting day / with so much needless fear and sorrow? / It's in its nature not to stay: / Today is always gone tomorrow."

    Found this analysis to help understanding the poem. Ariel was the name of Sylvia Platt´s horse.

    re: Maybe "planes, sharks, and jets" are just the point.

    I didn´t find any analysis, but here is this short comment about this poem by the author herself:
    “This poem was written several years after the grandmother figure had passed away. She had been my best friend and sharpest-eyed literary critic for more than fifty years. It was a day during which such contrasting yet mostly harmonious seascapes were present: the lasting dunes, the wind, the water. And the young boy . . . where did he fit within the landscape? What would his future hold? This poem is also my prayer that he will not be swept into the violence of the military apparatus, represented by the planes overhead. He is now in middle school. I have great hope for him.”
    —Pia Täavila-Borsheim

    "The Pledge" is one of the most famous and one of my favorite poems by Schiller!

    Interesting comparison poem "Vinegar and Oil..". Isn't there something in the Bible about vinegar and oil?

    Try again

    "Vinegar and Oil Bible"... https://www.shakespeareandcompany.co...-and-oil-bible

    re: NT Bible... https://hermeneutics.stackexchange.c...negar-to-drink ... so it wasn't vinegar and oil given to our Savior... however when He was at Gethsemane, the olive garden overlooking Jerusalem, he sweat great drops of blood, like the first pressings of olives, while in supplication to Heavenly Father. There may be other references that I'm not aware of... More research !

    Such a sad poignant poem by Ann Carson. Enjoyed

    Bravo, you overcame the instability! I saw your earlier entry of the post above in "two words poem". Should it ever become too difficult, leave it there and I will try to transfer it, when on PC. Thanks for the research on vinegar and oil.

    From the three translations of Petrarca's sonnet 1 I prefer the first by Charlemont.
