One day I want to write a line as beautiful and as hopeful as this… 11 Replies “The trees are coming in to leaf, Like something almost being said” – From ‘The Trees’, Philip Larkin Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related
Yeah, it’s sometimes unfair to pull out individual lines from poems as something to aspire to… because we all need to be able to write more than a great line. But this is one that I’ve just loved for a long time.
We’re lucky to have such beautiful writers to aspire to…
Now that’s a great line.
A very Zen quality to it. Lately I have been being threatened with random “Zen a Day Calendar” posts that aren’t even linear… yesterday I had October 20th sitting on my desk… there are a few with beautiful lines though. Much like this one.
Maybe they’re challenging you to remain zen-like despite the lack of order.But yeah, I do love this line.
That is a stunning line. Thanks for the reminder to dive into a bit of Larkin again.
