Today, Prose is bringing you a very special midweek episode in honor of its founder's younger brother and bff's birthday!  This celebration takes the form of a reading of an elegant poem:  "The Gardener Lxviii: None Lives For Ever, Brother" by Rabindranath Tagore.  The text is below for those unfamiliar who might like to follow along.

 

None lives for ever, brother, and
nothing lasts for long. Keep that in
mind and rejoice.
Our life is not the one old burden,
our path is not the one long
journey.
One sole poet has not to sing one
aged song.
The flower fades and dies; but he
who wears the flower has not to
mourn for it for ever.
Brother, keep that in mind and
rejoice.
There must come a full pause to
weave perfection into music.
Life droops toward its sunset to be
drowned in the golden shadows.
Love must be called from its play
to drink sorrow and be borne to the
heaven of tears.
Brother, keep that in mind and
rejoice.
We hasten to gather our flowers lest
they are plundered by the passing
winds.
It quickens our blood and brightens
our eyes to snatch kisses that would
vanish if we delayed.
Our life is eager, our desires are keen,
for time tolls the bell of parting.
Brother, keep that in mind and
rejoice.
There is not time for us to clasp a
thing and crush it and fling it away to
the dust.
The hours trip rapidly away, hiding
their dreams in their skirts.
Our life is short; it yields but a
few days for love.
Were it for work and drudgery it
would be endlessly long.
Brother, keep that in mind and
rejoice.
Beauty is sweet to us, because she
dances to the same fleeting tune with
our lives.
Knowledge is precious to us, because
we shall never have time to
complete it.
All is done and finished in the eternal
Heaven.
But earth's flowers of illusion are
kept eternally fresh by death.
Brother, keep that in mind and
rejoice.

Traverse the pitfalls of life with two would-be, can’t-be, won’t be lovers in "To Protect the Innocent."

***

Elizabeth Peterson is an educator, mathematician, and playwright who can be found between New England, Scotland, and Canada. She likes logic and words, and her favorite words are syzygy, eleemosynary, and logodaedaly. You can read her theatre reviews and thoughts on the world at her website, https://mathematicalmedievalist.wordpress.com/. It was a real treat for us all to hear her dulcet voice in place of my usual droning.  Hopefully, we’ll hear even more from her soon, both as a voice actor and as an author.

Well, friends, we made it.  I can finally say it…

Hello and welcome to episode fifty of Prose.

This week, traverse the pitfalls of life with two would-be, can’t-be, won’t be lovers. Then, endure the unknown on a trail with young Telo. Lastly, accept my humble thanks via a poem.

Just, wow, people.  Thank you all SO much for sticking with me for this long.  Some loose math on what, precisely, we’ve encountered thus far on our journey together is in order.  Again, loosely, we have wandered through around 70 hours of tales, philosophical meanderings, poems, and histories over the course of a little over 150 original episodes. Those numbers include two Christmas specials, two Easter specials, a New Year’s Eve special, some random thank-you specials, and, most recently, a Valentine’s Day special. 

As per my normal pleas, I hope that you’ll all go follow the show on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, as this can help the podcast get noticed; but, I truly beg you even more to head over  to iTunes and leave a rating and/or review for Prose.  Ratings and reviews set this show up for continuing into the future.  For easiest access to the show, subscribe using iTunes, Google Play, or whatever podcast catcher is your favorite. 

Thanks for listening.  Let’s get to the tales, shall we?

This week we have “To Protect the Innocent,” Ants of the Fire: The Legend of Telo  Parts XI and XII titled “Alone” and “The Trail,” and my reading of “When Giving is All We Have” by Alberto Ríos.  All that being said, maybe there are more surprises coming your way, too…

Enjoy, and, one more time for the record.  THANK YOU.
