Who is the third who walks always beside you?
When I count, there are only you and I together
But when I look ahead up the white road
There is always another one walking beside you
Gliding wrapt in a brown mantle, hooded
I do not know whether a man or a woman
— But who is that on the other side of you?

T.S. Eliot (1888–1965)
The Waste Land. 1922.

                                    If there were water
And no rock
If there were rock
And also water
And water
A spring
A pool among the rock
If there were the sound of water only

T.S. Eliot (1888–1965)
The Waste Land. 1922.

'What is that noise?'
                The wind under the door.
'What is that noise now? What is the wind doing?'
                Nothing again nothing.
'You know nothing? Do you see nothing? Do you remember
            I remember
Those are pearls that were his eyes.
'Are you alive, or not? Is there nothing in your head?'

T.S. Eliot (1888–1965)
The Waste Land. 1922.
