The greener grass ...

... On Edward Thomas. British television coverage of politics must be truly awful if the appalling McLaughlin Group and Meet the Press seem lively by comparison. Perhaps it is because I am no longer young - and if so, it's one of the boons of growing old - but the current U.S. presidential campaign has struck me as paralyzingly dull. But Bryan is surely right about Edward Thomas's glorious poem. How can one finish reading that and give a tinker's dam about politics of any stripe?

By the way, take a look at the comment thread attached to that post.
