The Lexicon Regional Message Board
And its only tuesday. Way to go!
The Prairie Town
Lovers of beauty laugh at this grey town,
Where dust lies thick on ragged curb-side trees,
And compass-needle streets lead up and down
And lose themselves in empty prairie seas.
Here is no winding scented lane, no hill
Crowned with a steepled church, no garden wall
Of old grey stone where lilacs bloom, and fill
The air with fragrance when the May rains fall.
But here is the unsoftened majesty
Of the wide earth where all the wide streets end,
And from the dusty corner one may see
The full moon rise, and flaming sun descend.
The long main street, whence farmersí teams go forth,
Lies like an old sea road, star-pointed north.
Happy Independence Day to all our Lexiconians in the USA :-)
Pour it softly, pour it gently and pour it to the brim!
Aw, Mr. Birnam, why don't ya lay off the stuff for a while?
Hate Song by P.B. Shelley
A hater he came and sat by a ditch,
And he took an old cracked lute;
And he sang a song which was more of a screech
'Gainst a woman that was a brute.
Poem of the week
Ira Sadoff, 1945
Iíve been blessed
with a few gusts of wind,
a few loves
to wave goodbye to.
I still think of motherís kitchen,
sorry for tantrums
of way back when. No frost
lodged in me then. In those days
snow spread through town
like an epidemic: how archival
the blankness seemed.
If you flew above
the shell of the old house
it was nothing really:
there was no story
to our little ranch house,
so you couldnít hear a thing.
To Anacreon In Heaven
Lyrics by Ralph Tomlinson
(Verse 1 and Refrain)
To Anacreon in Heav'n, where he sat in full glee,
A few Sons of Harmony sent a petition
That he their Inspirer and Patron would be;
When this answer arrived from the Jolly Old Grecian:
"Voice, Fiddle, and Flute, no longer be mute,
I'll lend you my name and inspire you to boot,
And besides I'll instruct you, like me, to intwine
The Myrtle of Venus with Bacchus's Vine."
"The cloud-capp'd tow'rs, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve..."
Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today,
I wish, I wish he'd go away...
