Boondoggle

One blogger’s personal bridge to nowhere

Poem of the day

Richard Wilbur’s “Terza Rima“:

In this great form, as Dante proved in Hell,
There is no dreadful thing that can’t be said
In passing. Here, for instance, one could tell 

How our jeep skidded sideways toward the dead
Enemy soldier with the staring eyes,
Bumping a little as it struck his head,

And then flew on, as if toward Paradise.
