T. S. Eliot (Thomas Stearns Eliot) was an American poet.
History[edit | edit source]
The verse cited by Oxley was:
- "Through eyes that last I saw in tears, here in death's dream kingdom, the golden vision reappears."
It referred to a waterfall which fell down from two holes in a rock which looked like the eyes in a human skull. Behind the waterfall, the entrance to the town of Akator was hidden.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The verse cited by Harold Oxley is a slightly modified and abbreviated version of the first verse of a minor poem by Eliot titled "Eyes That Last I Saw In Tears". The complete verse reads:
Eyes that last I saw in tears
Here in death's dream kingdom
The golden vision reappears
I see the eyes but not the tears
This is my affliction
