Krazy A to Z Challenge 2017 – “K”

Kubla Khan

In my first two years of college, I was an undeclared English major. I must’ve taken dozens of literature and writing courses before I came to the realization that in order to have a fruitful career, I’d have to choose something more concrete to study. And so, a Computer Science major was born.

Freshman year, I took a British Lit course during which we studied the poetry and essays of many greats. A lot of it stuck with me including the following excerpt from a poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge:

“In Xanadu did Kubla Khan

A stately pleasure-dome decree:

Where Alph, the sacred river, ran

Through caverns measureless to man

Down to a sunless sea.”

I’ve always loved the first line of that poem for some reason. The full version can be found here. Check it out…no term papers required!
