R is for Reach

"Ah, but a man's Reach should exceed his grasp
Or what's a heaven for?"

Inspiring lines to reach for those stars.

Which is that one star that you want in your grasp more than any other?

Entry for letter R.

  1. Dear Blogger,

    It's good to see these lines from Browning. April is National Poetry month and I have been wanting to read some poetry - visit old favourites once again. There is a big display at the library but I have not had the time to get to one of those books.

    So, I will like to reach for one of those poems which evoke so many different memories and emotions.

    1. I remember how you would read out the poems to us.

    2. Really, which poems?

      Recently read a book of poems called "Hate that Cat" to Purva. She loved it. :)

    3. One that I remember quite clearly is Byron's Prisoner of Chillon.

      Does Purvu hate cats? More than Mangal the Ferocious?

    4. Yes, I remember that poem - particularly the youngest brother that he speaks of. We used to be very interested in the friendship between Byron & Shelley. :)

      No, Purva does not hate cats. And in that book that I mentioned, the child who wrote the poems actually starts liking the cat.

    5. You also told us anecdotes about Byron's and Shelley's visit to Chillon. There is a book on the two in our library and I have often thought of picking it up.
