Carpe diem

Sunday, 8 June, 2014

Ever get the feeling that life is passing you by? If you sense that you might be living “like a field mouse / Not shaking the grass”, Ezra Pound offers five lines of timeless advice about what’s to be done.

And the days are not full enough

And the days are not full enough
And the nights are not full enough
And life slips by like a field mouse
Not shaking the grass

Ezra Pound (1885 — 1972)
