(W)hy is poetry wholly an elderly taste? When I was twenty I could not for the life of me read Shakespeare for pleasure. now it lights me as I walk to think I have two acts of King John tonight, and shall next read Richard the Second. It is poetry that I want now -- long poems. I want the concentration and the romance, and the words all glued together, fused, glowing. having no time to waste any more on prose. When I was twenty I liked Eighteenth Century prose. now it's poetry I want, so I repeat like a tipsy sailor in the front of a public house.
