Post The Matrix by Amy Lowell
I came across this poem by Amy Lowell, and thought I'd share it with fellow movie lovers here. I just thought it interesting that the poet chose this title name nearly a hundred years ago, and the content of the poem is quite metaphysical as well. Enjoy!

The Matrix
by: Amy Lowell (1874-1925)

Goaded and harassed in the factory
That tears our life up into bits of days
Ticked off upon a clock which never stays,
Shredding our portion of Eternity,
We break away at last, and steal the key
Which hides a world empty of hours; ways
Of space unroll, and Heaven overlays
The leafy, sun-lit earth of Fantasy.
Beyond the ilex shadow glares the sun,
Scorching against the blue flame of the sky.
Brown lily-pads lie heavy and supine
Within a granite basin, under one
The bronze-gold glimmer of a carp; and I
Reach out my hand and pluck a nectarine.
