A poem a day in April from Rutgers English PhD students and friends.

Found among letters, 1912

"all this blanky blank religion”

“now there will be the usual old row & people will be angrier than ever” 

“I must let my mind go loose a bit”

“I like better & better”
  • “my nominal chaperone . . . chiefly because he is teaching me Anglo-Saxon” 

“The things I like best are”
  • “Today being Easter Day there is an Omophagic on the quarter deck & surplices are hurrying about”
  • “A young man from Oxford (Exeter) writes to ME to ask . . .  how far Greek religion encouraged farts”

“Do you remember contending with me on the cliffs
& maintaining that there was more in religion than the collective conscience”
