Current Mood: awake
Current Song: Romeo and Juliet by Matt Nathanson

Tomorrow it will be
The King's move, I suppose, and we shall have
One more magnificent waste of nameless pawns,
And of a few more knights.

- from Lancelot by Edwin Arlington Robinson

Read the piece in its entirety.

Last week, I posted The Unforgiven by Edwin Arlington Robinson.

Lovely snippet. I will have to come back to the entire poem later in the day - no time just now. But it looks like my sort of cup of tea!

Ooh, lovely. The only E.A. Robinson poem I'd read and remembered was Richard Cory but he had so many other great ones...
