John F kennedy died November 22, 1963, the same day as C.S. Lewis and Aldous Huxley.
Aldous Huxley wrote some poetry, most of it not very good. But I did like this one:
I have tried to remember the familiar places, -
The pillared gloom of the beechwoods, the towns by the sea, -
I have tried to people the past with dear known faces,
But you were haunting me.
Like a remorse, insistent, pitiless,
You have filled my spirit, you were ever at hand;
You have mocked my gods with your new loveliness:
Broken the old shrines stand.

A C. S. Lewis quote:
"Consciousness is either inexplicable illusion, or else revelation."
