We Shall Not Cease from Exploration : TS Eliot

Healing, PoetryChloë Rain

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Through the unknown, remembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple-tree

Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half heard, in the stillness
Between the two waves of the sea.
Quick now, here, now, always--
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)

And all shall be well and
All manner of things shall be well
When the tongues of flame are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.

                Little Gidding V,
                 - T.S. Eliot (1943)

Poetry by T. S. Eliot Read by Tom O'Bedlam Music by Hans Zimmer Directed by Manos Cizek What we call the beginning is often the end And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.
