"The two elements the traveler first captures in the big city are extra human architecture and furious rhythm. Geometry and anguish"

Once we merge with the Core
Trusting the efficiency
Of our Soul’s intent
The Flow becomes
The only possible direction

quote 2016-04-06 23:00
Bent double, like old beggars under sacks,
Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge,
Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs,
And towards our distant rest began to trudge.
Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots,
But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind;
Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
Of gas-shells dropping softly behind.

Gas! GAS! Quick, boys!—An ecstasy of fumbling
Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time,
But someone still was yelling out and stumbling
And flound’ring like a man in fire or lime.—
Dim through the misty panes and thick green light,
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning.

In all my dreams before my helpless sight,
He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.

If in some smothering dreams, you too could pace
Behind the wagon that we flung him in,
And watch the white eyes writhing in his face,
His hanging face, like a devil’s sick of sin;
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud
Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues,—
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,
The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria mori.
The Collected Poems of Wilfred Owen - Wilfred Owen,Cecil Day-Lewis

This poem is listed on many websites, but I copied it from The Poetry Foundation to share here. His complete collection is beautiful, but this is my favorite poem. I wanted to share it for National Poetry Month. 

 

It may not seem particularly feminist, but it's my favorite.

Love's time's beggar, but even a single hour,
bright as a dropped coin, makes love rich.
We find an hour together, spend it not on flowers
or wine, but the whole of the summer sky and a grass ditch.
Love Poems - Carol Ann Duffy

"Hour", page 43
