The Robins


On this day of all days, when walls of lives crash for another, when the one red sun blights the million stars, when big fishes swallow glory days,

Let the Leaches listen.

On this very day of all days, we stand in spirit at the gates of the Rock, Ancestors, Existings and Unborns pressing upon the very hinges and lock, Things change or wish your fortunes, lives and names away.

Let the Leaders listen.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

In May-time of the year,

Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
