That is not what King Henry II had in mind when he gave the ring to Eleanor of Aquitaine. He had in mind love, devotion, and using every moment possible for the best in life. In "We Real Cool," the young pool players are not in fact seizing the day, they are wasting their lives doing exactly what they want to do, rather than doing what will pay them
This darkness is the poem is the suggestion of death, which Eliot's character contemplates throughout the poem. In fact, the last lines of the poem refer to death. Eliot writes, "We have lingered in the chambers of the sea / By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown / Till human voices wake us, and we drown" (Eliot). Eliot's character knows his life is ending, and love and courtship are
