    Poem of the month:

    I sit in a mood of reverie.
    I brought to Art desires and sensations:
    things half-glimpsed,
    faces or lines, certain indistinct memories
    of unfulfilled love affairs. Let me submit to Art:
    Art knows how to shape forms of Beauty,
    almost imperceptibly completing life,
    blending impressions, blending day with day. 

    —C. P. Cavafy, trans. Edmund Keeley
