I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.

Where does one go from a world of insanity? Somewhere on the other side of despair.
Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach? I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach. I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each. I do not think that they will sing to me.
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each; I do not think they will sing to me.

Should I, after tea and cakes and ices Have the strength to force the moment to its crisis?
I have seen the moment of my greatness flicker,
Music heard so deeply that it is not heard at all, but you are the music while the music lasts.
His laughter tinkled among the teacups.

We are the hollow men We are the stuffed men Learning together.

Let us go then, you and I When the evening is spread out against the sky Like a patient etherized upon a table.
