Olympic Park Poetry

Last lines from Tennyson’s “Ulysses” (photo: Telegraph)


Check out these six photos of poetic works on public display at the Olympic Park, London. See Guardian photo gallery here.  The ones etched into wood kind of have a giant Ikea box feel to them and brings back childhood memories of popsicle stick houses.  A snippet from Tennyson’s “Ulysses”; the last four line so apropo to the Olympics and Olympic spirit:

 
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are –
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

About poeticmeditations

The Romantic poets, nib pens, candlelight, waistcoats, and pocket watches are a few of my favorite things.
