Another year gone

Ah .. another new year. I just finished musing about life and the need for decisions every moment. Years pass and leave me enriched mostly, they leave me depleted sometimes but always a year older and with an increase in the amount of white hair on my head. Another year gone!

Going back to my favourite poem Ulysses about which I blogged earlier

Maybe Ulysses (or Tennyson rather) sang thus on new year eve when he was musing about life and wondering about getting older with the passing year like me.


I am a part of all that I have met;
Yet all experience is an arch wherethro'
Gleams that untravell'd world whose margin fades
For ever and forever when I move.



and then took a new year resolution

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Another interpretation.. Good poetry is that which reflects your mind.

"Good poetry is that which reflects your mind " - As long as your intelligent enough to read through good poetry and philosophical enough to reflect..!
