This whole list has become pointless unless others join in and actually discuss Eliot.  As it stands, it is not even a list. I feel a fool for even commenting.
 
We used to have discussions; that almost never happens now, and when it does briefly, it is quickly interrupted and distorted and everyone stops. So I may as well also.

When has cr paid any respect to ANY poem by anyone. He certainly has never paid any respect to any poemby Elit, since he takes Eliot’s text, ignores it, and writes acommentary on some  fantasy of his own which would make Eliot gag if he were alive to see it.

One owes respect to Yeats's poem.  It is not about any of this. That is harm.

All Saints' Day

 

The vigil of this feast is popularly called "Hallowe'en" or "Halloween".

'Solemnity' is celebrated on the first of November -- instituted to honour all the saints,
known and unknown, to supply any deficiencies in the faithful's celebration of saints'

feasts during the year.

 

 

Faced with 'darkness', one may surely implore some 'light'. 

No harm, I suppose.

"O sages standing in God's holy fire
 As in the gold mosaic of a wall,
 Come from the holy fire, perne in a gyre,
 And be the singing-masters of my soul."

//Hallow means Holy.

Hallowe'en is the evening of the day of all saints,//

The dark before the light.

"Dust inbreathed was a house—
 The walls, the wainscot and the mouse"

 

"The parched eviscerate soil
 Gapes at the vanity of toil,
 Laughs without mirth."

 

"Water and fire shall rot
 The marred foundations we forgot,
 Of sanctuary and choir."
