Drowning in Life

Langston Hughes

“I went down to the river,
I set down on the bank.
I tried to think but couldn’t,
So I jumped in and sank.”

― Langston Hughes

Ted Hughes

“Nobody wanted your dance,
Nobody wanted your strange glitter, your floundering
Drowning life and your effort to save yourself,
Treading water, dancing the dark turmoil,
Looking for something to give.”
― Ted HughesBirthday Letters

Langston Hughes

“Life is for the living.
Death is for the dead.
Let life be like music.
And death a note unsaid.”

― Langston HughesThe Collected Poems

Plato

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination
and life to everything.”

Charles Darwin

“If I had my life to live over again, I would have made a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once every week.” (And from the gates of hell, reluctantly admit to God that the Origin of Species was evolutionary nonsense– Gwenny)
