Elizabeth`s storry is amazing... on sunday I got a brand new Honda from earning $9023 this last four weeks and even more than 10-k this past month. with-out any doubt it's the most financially rewarding I've ever had. I started this 8-months ago and pretty much straight away was bringing home over $71... per-hr. I use this great link........

Best Poem of Elizabeth Bishop

The Fish

I caught a tremendous fish
and held him beside the boat
half out of water, with my hook
fast in a corner of his mouth.
He didn't fight.
He hadn't fought at all.
He hung a grunting weight,
battered and venerable
and homely. Here and there
his brown skin hung in strips
like ancient wallpaper,
and its pattern of darker brown
was like wallpaper:
shapes like full-blown roses
stained and lost through age.
He was speckled with barnacles,
fine rosettes of lime,
and infested
with tiny white sea-lice,
and underneath two or three
rags of green ...

Read the full of The Fish

Argument

Days that cannot bring you near
or will not,
Distance trying to appear
something more obstinate,
argue argue argue with me
endlessly
neither proving you less wanted nor less dear.

Distance: Remember all that land
