Time and Eternity

  • Cheryl Walker

Abstract

Let us begin with recent history, with wars, terrorist acts, plagues, and natural disasters of biblical proportions. In the wake of so much misery, we need to remember, with Walt Whitman, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and William Wordsworth, that eternity lies around us every day. Even those who profess no faith in God have had experiences of it—in love, in nature, and in art. Such experiences, of course, are the lifeblood of poetry, and, though poetry seems forbidding to many, it remains the most memorable form of literary art, furnishing us—faithful and atheist alike—with words to express our most profound feelings.
