    As a long-time fan of A.P. Herbert (we even share a birthday) I have tried without success to find his marvellous verse dedicated to the recipe of the perfect Martini. Can anyone help?

    I am looking for the text of a Herbert poem. I belive the name of said poem is, ¨I Do Feel Bohemiam Tonight.¨
    It is the onlñy Herbert poem I was familiar with so seems odd no to find it here with ´all´ his other works.
    Any Ideas?

('Our lantern was extinguished . . .'—The Speaker)
'Extinguished?' No, Sir. Darkened for the fight,
Blacked-out, bombarded, bullied night and day,
The lamp of Parliament still kept alight
To show the sad lost Continent the way.
April 29, 1945
