Poetic Sidewalks

Trundling along with friends on a New York City sidewalk, and all of a sudden we are walking on poetry and quotations from famous authors. Rectangular pieces of brass, words in the centre, art-work around it.

What a wonderful way to introduce or remind people of good writers!

(Never mind that most New Yorkers are rushing by, stamping on the quotes in complete oblivion, drinking their coffee, talking on the phone, listening to music…).

Here is one that resonated:

A word is dead

When it is said,

Some say.

I say it just

Begins to live

That day.

– Emily Dickinson

The life of words
