Why do those who see feel so lonely? Because Mr. Eliot was correct, this place is all dissolved in the wind. It is the true tragedy of this place, of not what is, but what could have been. But, alas, the children ruined it by never growing up. They evolved, they reached the stars, but they refused to care, and never learned the lesson of the wind, if you don't hold it tight with care, it will blow away. Eliot's poem is savage and beautiful and haunting. It surprisingly ends with a hope that is as solid as those granite islands, that care has built and not even galactic winds can chip.
