    Start working at home with Google. It’s the most-financially rewarding I've ever done. On tuesday I got a gorgeous BMW after having earned $8699 this last month. I actually started five months/ago and practically straight away was bringin in at least $96, per-hour....…….....HEAR www.GeoSalary.com

    This poem is divinely beautiful, and very aspiring. All Americans (all Poets) should revere and remember the name of Katharine Lee Bates. This is really wonderful. The words are divine and mystical.

    Hey yo! i read your poem called ' America the Beautiful ' & i lost my focus, personal attribute & listening skill, hence i believe that everything has it's own place & time, but the fact remains! I couldn't believe that this was my home country.

    Your correspondence will be highly appreciated.

    Have a nice day!

When shall the Christ be born?"

He laughed as he answered, grim Gaffer Time,
Whose laugh is sadder than all men's moan.
"That name rides high on our wrath and crime,
For the Light in darkness shone.

"And thou, fair youngling, wilt mend the tale?"
The New Year ...
