cassandra weeping…

Cried Apollo in Hyperion: “I strive to search wherefore I am so sad / Until a melancholy numbs my limbs.”

True…a sense of loss…melancholy…if really exists….kind of pre-empts the attention of poet’s (also the muse who writes) imagination and permanence…appearance and reality…thought and sensation…quiescent and rousing….
This oscillation….restlessness…in its essence…might…fluctuate from altruistic idealism…to selfish hedonism…
Poet’s quest for permanence…a lifelong spiritual guard….goes against…his awareness of human mutability….

…”If I am destined to be happy with you here, how short is the longest life!”…

Poet chases the eternal vanishing figure of his muse….in a mood of profound dejection….the aching heart….might be…metaphoric for the state of mind…key to which…is the mythological allusion to the river Lethe…the drowsy numbness…regressive movement…(sorry poet!!!)

…”if it were now to die / I were now to be most happy”…

Now the muse….what she goes through….suffering…?…agony…?…wretched…?…a Grecian urn…un-calendared past…un-divined future…defeats (tries to) the ruthless exactions of mortal plague…the eternally vanishing figure…most explicit exegesis of the crux…(disgraceful!!!)

The mourning poet cannot hear the mourning muse…he can at best….internalize the image…the symbolic muse…supreme power of art (witty)…ideal beauty (not pretty)…
Driven by his own artistic sensibility…poet…is trapped in the dozy deadness of reflex creativity…

(I really have no idea what this piece is about….just felt an urge to write….)
