A seething storm within me swirls --
It grips my soul, forsooth --
Yet I dare not take up the quill
And let it speak my truth;

The might of words cannot contain
Nor tame this ruthless rage:
For should I lay it out in ink,
I fear 'twould scorch the page!




 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...


--William Shakespeare, from The Tempest

Wish I could write little dittys like this.
From you they flow like water from a cascading waterfall, with such freedom and purpose.
Very nice.

Kess,
     if I can find my Ullean pipes, would you like to sing this one with me?

Excellent as always, my friend. . .
