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.
