Poem for Monday and <lj comm


Along With Youth
By Ernest Hemingway


A porcupine skin,
Stiff with bad tanning,
It must have ended somewhere.
Stuffed horned owl
Pompous
Yellow eyed;
Chuck-wills-widow on a biassed twig
Sooted with dust.
Piles of old magazines,
Drawers of boy's letters
And the line of love
They must have ended somewhere.
Yesterday's Tribune is gone
Along with youth
And the canoe that went to pieces on the beach
The year of the big storm
When the hotel burned down
At Seney, Michigan.

hp100: Adjacent, for the rerun challenge. I looked in the Mirror of Erised. As Snape. With pretty obvious results.

Couple of recent HP stories I really, really liked: casira's Conjunctions and eponis' An Alphabet of Objects.

Thought this quiz was quite interesting though I can't figure out how I got this result given the answers I gave; I didn't even check "wise" as one of my attributes.
