Ash Wednesday



Because I do not hope to turn again

Because I do not hope

Because I do not hope to turn

Desiring this man's gift and that man's scope

I no longer strive to strive towards such things

(Why should the ag├Ęd eagle stretch its wings?)

Why should I mourn

The vanished power of the usual reign?


T.S Eliot 1930
