‘The Philosopher’

I think I’ve found this academic season’s poetic anthem and keynote, just in time for the first day of the Fall term in what I’m dubbing the Year of the Peripatetic. We’ll be leaving our “chamber drear” at every opportunity, especially while the summer’s sun is still with us. 

Enough of Thought, Philosopher;
Too long hast thou been dreaming
Unlightened, in this chamber drear –
While summer’s sun is beaming –
Space-sweeping soul, what sad refrain
Concludes thy musings once again?
– Emily Brontë (1818-1848), ‘The Philosopher
