“Happy Birthday”

dedicated to Eleanorigby.

********

"In my holy kitchen
I draw the blinds of night
On the homes of sleep.
I hold the world in my palms.
Now that I am old
I can measure life with words.
There's a nightingale in my coffee.
My bread is buttered with memories.
Since the old woman died
I have two souls.

When I was small we had a lucky black cat.
We had a magic horse-shoe on the wall,
It was rusty and brought no luck
But fetched the fields into the kitchen
And made us not forget horses.

When you are old you make your own magic.
You speak oftener for the dead.
You move free in the wonderland of the past.
You invent a future on the other shore of death"

Tristan Tzara

"SCAFFOLDING"

**********

Masons, when they start upon a building,
Are careful to test out the scaffolding;

Make sure that planks won't slip at busy points,
Secure all ladders, tighten bolted joints.

And yet all this comes down when the job's done
Showing off walls of sure and solid stone.

So if, my dear, there sometimes seem to be
Old bridges breaking between you and me

Never fear: We may let the scaffolds fall
Confident that we have built our wall.

We haven't used this nice thread in a while.

I just LOVE this song..

Words.. so wonderful
they need to be printed out.

Great melody.. too.

Dedicated to all the dreamers here.



- John O'Dreams -

"When midnight comes and people homeward tread,
Seek out your blanket and your feathered bed,
Home comes the rover ... his journey's over
Yield up the night time to old John O'Dreams

[2]
Across the hill the sun has gone astray
Tomorrows cares are many dreams away
The stars are flying ... your candle's dying
Yield up the night time to ole John O'Dreams

[3]
Both man and master in the night are one
All things are equal when the day is done

The prince and the ploughman; the slave, the free man
All find their comfort in old John O'Dreams
All find their comfort in old John O'Dreams:

[4]
When sleep .. it comes our dreams come running clear
The hawks of morning cannot reach you here
Sleep is a river ... flow on for ever
And for your boatman choose old John O'Dreams
Yes for your boatman choose old John O'Dreams: "

You've given me a reason for smiling once again.You've filled my life with peaceful dreams and you've become my closest friend.You've shared your heartfelt secrets and your trust you've given me.You showed me how to feel again,to laugh and love and to see.If life should end for me tomorrow and from this world I should part,I shall be forever young for you have touched my heart.

For My Friend... My Favorite Worm...
:o)
@}-'--,---

The Little Worm...
Was Going out to lunch...
Chewing through the Vellum...
Enjoying the Parchment crunch...
A little tang there in the words...
Indexing as the feats occured...
The Little Worm...
Experiencing the stages...
Becoming engrossed, with the turning pages...
Morning, Noon and Night,
The Little Worm consumes...
Thoughts, action and deeds...
Never having to leave her room...
Her friends all know her passion...
For the storyline that grows...
With Each mystery unfolding...
The Little Worm Simply Glows...
