Titanic Poem and Pansy Tea

Who does not love the Titanic?  If they sold passage tomorrow for that same crossing who would not buy?  To go down...We all go down mostly alone.  But with crowds of people, friends, servants well fed, with music, with lights!  Ah!  And the world, shocked, mourns, as it ought to do and almost never does.  There will be the books and movies to remind our grandchildren who we were and how we died, and give them a good cry.  Not so bad after all.  The cold water is anaesthetist and very quick. The cries on all sides must be a comfort.  We all go only a few first class.    David Slavitt


  1. Hi Denise,
    thank you for your visit and your kind comment. So I discovered your blog. You have a lovely blog with a really beautiful design.
    The poem has some interesting aspects, although I am happy that it was not you who stated it. It sounds partially depressed. I myself wouldn't have had the money to book a fare on the Titanic, not even for the 3rd class.
    Your Pansy tea is so springy and nice. Those little faces of pansies are cute. The tea cup looks fresh and dainty with the pansy decoration.
    And I see, you have a special skill to make nice tablesettings and decorations. I really love it. I am a new follower.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  2. Hello Denise
    Quite the celebration for the 100 years following the sinking of the Titanic. I was listening to the radio this morning to hear what Halifax was doing as a tribute, and it sounded very nice.

  3. What a thoughtful poem. Do you know when it was written? Thanks for sharing that! And thanks for your visit.

  4. Hi Denise, So glad you stopped by from the Titanic Tea Party. Your blog template is really beautiful! Loved seeing what was written by a passenger who knew the fate. Also love your pansy tea cup! Have a great week!
