But you will definitely give me a swelled head,
putting me in his category..LOL..
I think if you asked a number of offbeaters to vote we'd all agree that you are an excellent poet.

<quoted text>the big uestion right now still seems to be, who was really behind it? One person asked "is the USA being baited into getting involved?" Seeing as Al Quaida seems to be part of the rebel forces, could it be them who initiated it, in order to "get help" from the USA?
Totally agree there Franko just can't trust any of them,just need to keep out of this one and let them get on with it..

A dying cult with the amount they're killing each other,plus I think two years ago six million Africans converted to Christianity,not that I'm god fearing or anything..

Thankyou Krypteia...as I hope the same for your own son.

On another subject, the travellers you mentioned were in the
newspaper yesterday, it shown them prked up on the park, and
how they had driven over pavements and so on so that the Council
ha to let them through. Pity that, as had they broken down railings, there would have been grounds to evict.
Hope your Aunt had no bother.

Franko's quite right Grace, he is very astute in all
things, I hadn't heard of Seamus Heaney myself before
now, but there the papers have given him a lot of
covrage, I see my former comment 'a lovely man' doesn't
quite do him justice....he was an icon, and did much
for the English language in his quest to keep it pure.
I like the way his poetry told a story...thinking of
'Diggers' now.

Thank You indeed, El.
You were right, you know,
About Seamus Heaney,
Everyone said, apart from his great talent
he was a lovely man.
I agree with your choice El,
and a very popular choice it is.
This too, is worth reading, very moving
account of when his father died..

"Mid-Term Break"
by Seamus Heaney
*****
'Mid-Term Break by Seamus Heaney
I sat all morning in the college sick bay
counting bells knelling classes to a close.
At two o'clock our neighbors drove me home.
In the porch I met my father crying--
He had always taken funerals in his stride--
and Big Jim Evans saying it was a hard blow.
The baby cooed and laughed and rocked the pram
when I came in, and I was embarrassed
by old men standing up to shake my hand
And tell me they were "sorry for my trouble,"
Whispers informed strangers I was the eldest,
away at school, as my mother held my hand
in hers and coughed out angry tearless sighs.
At ten o'clock the ambulance arrived
With the corpse, stanched and bandaged by the nurses.
Next morning I went up into the room. Snowdrops
and candles soothed the bedside; I saw him
for the first time in six weeks. Paler now,
wearing a poppy bruise on his left temple,
He lay in the four foot box as in his cot.
no gaudy scars, the bumper knocked him clear.
A four foot box, a foot for every year.'
