I never saw a wild thing
sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
without ever having felt sorry for itself.
-D. H. Lawrence 'Self-Pity' Pansies: Poems (1929)
: I believe it is on the movie G.I. Jane... at the very end... it shows the author...... the poem itself is called "self pitty"
: : Please could someone help me.....I once heard a verse by TS Eliot (I think) that went something like : "I have never seen a wild thing feel sorry for itself.....I have seen a bird fall frozen from its bough before feeling sorry for itself" Ring any bells with anyone?? I would really appreciate it if you could help me. Thanks
