AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Nodded.

Wyeth, Squash Patch, 1944


A touch of cold in the Autumn night—
I walked abroad,
And saw the ruddy moon lean over a hedge
Like a red-faced farmer.
I did not stop to speak, but nodded,
And round about were the wistful stars
With white faces like town children.

T.E. Hulme
