    Such an elegant poem by an elegant Poetess. Poetry is always best spoken rather than simply read silently. Poetry is the earliest memnomic (now Spell Check won’t co-operate – maybe it is the heat death of the universe!) or memorization device in human language. The Hawaiians could cite many, many generations of ancestors through the memorizing of poetry and the passing along from the elders. We would not have folk memories were it not for rhyming. (This page has a lot of gorillas on it).

    I have been having issues with Biblio, Go Comics, Photo Lord and several others. Probably has to do with the amount of traffic right now. I also have to keep logging into WordPress. Also depends on hucksters’ activities.
