The Barrovian

"Semper Sursum"


All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king.

Understanding Poetry

Happy National Poetry Month! This comic was inspired by one of my favorite poems, "The New Poetry Handbook" by Mark Strand. This month on Incidental Comics, I’ll be exploring the world of poetry. A place, as Marianne Moore famously said, of  ”imaginary gardens with real toads in them.”

And she said:

"I do worry about you because I think very few people, if anyone, knows the real you, and that must be terribly lonely…"

I’ve heard that so many times over the years. You’d think I would be used to it by now.

Still hurts, every time.
