The magical realm of the Victorian era
aeroplanes whistled through cleaner air
England throned the desert Sahara

The exquisite globe of the world frontier
The modern idea was set to be found
Discovered by men in their churches in prayer

Ears were hearkened to the brand new juke box
They ate and drank and listened to rumors
Of college visits and the league of Red Sox

They rode home in their Studebakers and Stanhopes
With electric motors and 54 inch tread
And Everest waited, the mountainous slopes

Claude Debussy's La Mer, the seaman's affair
the fiddle for the Celts and bagpipes for the scotch
as they march to war in Gaul, the New World unaware

then, fall in love, under the stars: in the month of June
where two lovers never part, never break their hearts
making love, under the light of the silvery moon

Poem of the Day

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

Life is real, life is earnest,
And the shell is not its pen –
“Egg thou art, and egg remainest”
Was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting,
