A cool pict of Phlebas

If’n I do say so myself. And some education in regards to English Lit, to boot. Received a reference to an old poem and this pict from a friend who I was traveling with this weekend…


Death by Water

Phlebas the Phoenician, a fortnight dead, Forgot the cry of gulls, and the deep sea swell And the profit and loss. A current under sea Picked his bones in whispers. As he rose and fell He passes the stages of his age and youth Entering the whirlpool. Gentile or Jew O you who turn the wheel and look windward, Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you.

William Butler Yeats
