World Poetry Day -- Celebrate favorites!

     Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave
     Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;

     Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.
     I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

                      From "Dirge without Music" by Edna St Vincent Millayoffered by Hermann Weyl
                      in a Memorial Address for Amalie "Emmy" Noether on April 26, 1935 at Bryn Mawr College.
