Pure Verb

I ate the day
Deliberately, that its tang
Might quicken me all into verb, pure verb.

(Seamus Heaney “Oysters”)

I don’t really have any thoughts to share about these–more of my favorite lines from Heaney–except to say that they seem appropriate for a sunny, beautiful Spring Saturday.  I’ll leave you to reflect on them as you will.
