Mary Oliver, reading her poem “Wild Geese”

Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
   Meanwhile the world goes on.

Watching Sherlock reminds me that Rupert Graves sang this adorable nonsense song in A Room with a View – one of my all-time favourite films.

‘However, we’re in E flat.’ ;)

It’s from Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Story of Prince Agib. The way the song is used in this particular scene I reckon serves to goad Lucy and anticipate Upcoming Events, LoL. ‘Let the piano’s martial blast / Rouse the echoes of the past’ – which is totally about to happen once Freddy invites George Emerson over to Slashy Corner for tennis…

Ooh, that’s one of my favorite parts of the movie, and I had no idea the song was from G&S. Also reblogging for Freddy’s floppy hair, of course.
