UNIDENTIFIED GUEST: Your wife has left you?
EDWARD: Without warning, of course;
Just when she’d arranged a cocktail party.
She’d gone when I came in, this afternoon.
She left a note to say that she was leaving me;
But I don’t know where she’s gone…
—T.S. Eliot, The Cocktail Party
cf. State Archives of Florida, “Young people at a City Recreation Dept. dance…” (1962)
…some heightened sensitivity to the promises of life, as if he were related to one of those intricate machines that register earthquakes ten thousand miles away…it was an extraordinary gift for hope, a romantic readiness such as I have never found in any other person and which it is not likely I shall ever find again.
—F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
cf. Gjon Mili, “The Lindy Hop” (LIFE, 1943)
O My Luve’s like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June…
Summer for thee grant I may be
When summer days are flown!
Thy music still when whippoorwill
And oriole are done!
New York Magazine, 1969
Summer’s joys are spoilt by use,
And the enjoying of the Spring
Fades as does its blossoming…
–John Keats, Fancy
