Little Gidding

February 25, 2014

Who then devised the torment? Love.

Love is the unfamiliar Name

Behind the hands that wove

The intolerable shirt of flame

Which human power cannot remove.

       We only live, only suspire,

       Consumed by either fire or fire

– T.S. Eliot, Little Gidding
