“For the space between my shadow and the shadow is straitened momently…and the space is no wider than the thickness of a wizard’s pen.”

—   

Clark Ashton Smith, “The Double Shadow,” from The Dark Eidolon and Other Fantasies

Now that it’s spring, it’s time to get wise and drop some knowledge bombs on your friends. If you’re keeping up with Poems by Heart, your friends are probably totally sick of you quoting Yeats by now, so how about switching to something new? The futile yet imaginative questing for adventure of “Miniver Cheevy,” the doubting/inspiring (depending on how you view it) “The Road Not Taken,” and jaw-dropping ode to beauty that is Teasdale’s “Moonlight.” All great verses to turn to in a pensive moment.
