Rabble rousing when I should be working, I stumbled across your poems on here. Brilliant, I must say-your perception is phenomenal, and I look forward to reading more.

It might have been God or one of the Muses. I'd say, you have a sky-wide mind, perhaps there's some heavenly recognition of the fact somewhere there?

I figured that I would comment that someone recently called me a 'cheeky varmint.' That's about the nicest thing that any one has ever said to me.

POEM OF THE DAY
Immortality

O Liberty! thou goddess, heavenly bright,
profuse of bliss and pregnant with delight,
Eternal pleasures in thy presence reign,
And smiling Plenty leads thy smiling train.
Eased of her load Subjection grows more light,
And Poverty looks cheerful in thy sight.
Giv'st beauty to the sun and pleasures to the day.
thee, goddess, thee, Britannia's isle adores!
How oft has she exhausted all her stores!
How oft on fields of death thy presence sought,
Nor thinks the mighty prize too dearly bought!
On foreign mountains may the sun refine
the grape's soft juice and mellow it in wine.
With citron groves adorn a distant soil.
And the fat olives swell with floods of oil.
We envy not the warmer clime, that lies
in ten degrees of more indulgent skies;
Nor at the coarseness of our heaven repine,
Though o'er our heads the frozen Pleiads shine.
'Tis Liberty that crowns Britannia's isle,
And makes her barren rocks and her bleak mountains shine
...
