The repeated reminder of Mr. Pound: that poetry should be as well written as prose.

        [Poetry]

In my beginning is my end.
      - Four Quartets--East Coker
        [Books (First Lines)]

The word neither diffident nor ostentatious,
  An easy commerce of the old and new,
    The common word exact without vulgarity,
      The formal word precise but not pedantic,
        The complete consort dancing together.
      - Four Quartets--Little Gidding [Poetry]

This is the way the world ends
  Not with a bang but a whimper.
      - The Hollow Men [End]

There will be time, there will be time
  To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet.
      - The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock [Time]

April is the cruelest month, breeding
  Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
    Memory and desire, stirring
      Dull roots with spring rain.
      - The Waste Land (pt. I) [April : Spring]
