And We Drown

We have lingered in the chambers of the sea,
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown. ~T.S. Eliot, "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock"

There's something absolutely stunning about those lines... my biggest disappointment - poetry wise - was when my Modern Poetry students couldn't see beauty in any of Eliot's work...
