    Oh well done, ancient and archaic scouser. The humour of it bubbles over into a historic anthem of our fearless old- time explorers. Not too long ago I saw an old fashioned sailing ship. It was smaller than one of our Liverpool cross river ferries. (And the old timers didn't have Gerry Marsden singing Ferry Cross the Mersey ad infinitum.) No wonder the venerable Mr Clough stood back in amazed disbelief. If he was still around I'd take him down to Lime Street and buy him a pint of real ale. (Not lager, mind you. Real men didn't drink lager in his day) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
