A weaver of prose and a tinker of rhyme. He believes that even before the foundations of the earth were designed, words still existed. He writes not for the volatile commercial markets, but pens top-notch opuses to quench the insatiable urgings of the Muse.Hannington believes that he's been called to fill the gaping gaps left by the inimitable pens of Shakespeare, Christina Rossetti, Robert Service, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, William Butler Yeats, Rudyard Kipling, Waldo Emerson, Edgar Allan Poe, Coleridge, Christopher Marlow, Milton, Donne, ...This list can never end - and I have already done injustice by omitting a lot of truly gifted old souls. more »

Best Poem of Hannington Mumo

Late Love

But your drowsy rounded eyes look so cunning fresh;
The kind of tools that the will men pervert.
