Just a thought that this thread may help supplement the Fave Scary Movie Thread once it slows down...

I belong to a 'Worldwide Conversation' site but they are 8/12 ahead of me- Despite this fact we still have very interesting non hate filled comments - I have to wait til later hours to submit a comment.

Hopefully this thread will NOT attract the deviant Trolls .

To begin .... This to me sends shivers up my spine.....

'The Listeners'
By Walter De La Mare 1873–1956 Walter De La Mare

‘Is there anybody there?’ said the Traveller,
Knocking on the moonlit door;
And his horse in the silence champed the grasses
Of the forest’s ferny floor:


Spooky Indeed

AAHHH MY fave from Dyl.. Tho have to admit I have no idea wtf he prating on about at times - Due to the fact that he took to many wee swallies of the Ginny and Bushys. Still I do love 'A Childs Christmas In Wales' LOL think he must have written that during the several moments of sobriety.

Anyone like Wordswoth ???

IS this not a lesson we all may learn to handle some of the unexpected obstacles that may crop up in our daily routine ????

"If at first you don't succeed - try, try again"

So many brave stalwart people such as Rabbi Burns set the precedent for the freedom we Americans should cherish. Thank gawd that the conversation 'twixt Rabbie & the
Wee Spider was not considered Politically Incorrect - EH ??

The legend of Bruce and spider is world famous.

It is said that in the early days of Bruce’s reign he was defeated by the English and driven into exile. He was on the run - a hunted man. He sought refuge in a small dark cave and sat and watched a little spider trying to make a web.

Time and time again the spider would fall and then climb slowly back up to try again.

Finally, as the Bruce looked on, the spider managed to stick a strand of silk to the cave wall and began to weave a web. Robert the Bruce was inspired by the spider and went on to defeat the English at the Battle of Bannockburn.
