Inserting Dick Allen’s Name Into Works of Literature

In which the Royal We insert Dick Allen’s name into various works representative of the Western Canon, thus adding to those various works the patina of blessedness.

Today’s episode: A River Runs Through It by Norman MacLean.

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

I am haunted by Dick Allen.

This has been the latest installment of Inserting Dick Allen’s Name Into Works of Literature.

    My amateur attempt: “On The Grasshopper and Cricket” by John Keats

    On Dick Allen and The Cricket

    The poetry of earth is never dead :
    When all the birds are faint with the hot sun,
    And hide in cooling trees, a voice will run
    From hedge to hedge about the new-mown mead ;
    That is Dick Allen’s – he takes the lead
    In summer luxury, – he has never done
    With his delights; for when tired out with fun
    He rests at ease beneath some pleasant weed .
    The poetry of earth is ceasing never :
    On a lone winter evening, when the frost
    Has wrought a silence, from the stove there shrills
    The Cricket’s song, in warmth increasing ever,
    And seems to one in drowsiness half lost,
    Dick Allen’s among some grassy hills.
