What writers are, usually, at the peaks of their careers when they
win the nobull prize? Was Eliot? He is one of the few poets I know,
whose poems have been labelled as songs.

Is that what his appearance on "60 Minutes" was about? I intended to
watch the interview but missed it. I am fully in favor of him winning
it, though it seems like he should have won it a long time ago when he
was at the peak of his career. He is one of only a few songwriters who
I think has lyrics which can be labeled as poetry.
The word is that he will win the 2005 Nobel Prize for Literature. If
so, he will be the first songwriter to do so.
Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin' high and mighty traps
Pounded with fire on flaming road
Using ideas as my maps
"We'll met on edges, soon," said I
Proud beneath heated brow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Darkness at the break of noon
Shadows even the silver spoon
The handmade blade, the child's balloon
Eclipses both the sun and moon
To understand you know too soon
There is no sense in trying.

I say yes.
