    Well, as a woman and a proud feminist apparently I finally have some relevancy in a discussion. Most flattering.

    My initial reaction would be to say that of course Louisa May Alcott was a...

    There are some good readers on Librivox. Elizabeth Klett is a trained actress and English prof who is my go-to for everything from Austen to Euripides.

    They only serve two pancakes each; there can't be heaping stacks lest many non-members accompany their moms to brunch. The pastor’s speech dog-paddles and never reaches shore: the multitudinous...

    You people are comforting. Sometimes I feel like I'm such a slow, un-dedicated reader. Last year I read 53 books, and fulfilled my goal to read a book a week. (A few of them I finished off as...

    Singing is something that I can be quite passionate about. I say "can be", because several years ago during a lonely time I felt the reason for my depression was not having the opportunities to sing...

    Thank-you, quimi! Yes, I was aware. One contest I'm considering submitting to stipulated that any internet postings be removed prior to submission, so I'm assuming that if that's done it won't...

    Ah, but by Jove! I am covetous for gold, so I'm considering a few summer competitions with monetary prizes I saw advertised at the library. I realize that might be the height of hubris.

    Thanks so much for your thoughts, prendrelemick! I just wrote it last night, so glad it wasn't too bad a decision to put it out so soon.

    An untitled Christmas poem, appearing ere the times are ripe. :p


    Woman's cries mingle with infant's,
    Stars hide from the primal counterpoint.
    The climbing sun sees no new thing;
    Blood and...

    Thanks, qimi. It's been a while. Yes, I wanted to explore the phrases I default to, even when I may be feeling awful and worthless, or in need of communicating much more.

    Thanks. The second part didn't come as easy, so I had more quibbles with it. But now I can see it's more interesting. I'll think about getting more of that dynamic in the beginning.

    Evensong

    For the pacific sky set in our hearts,
    For the sleeping air, like an infant's breath,
    For the earth forgetting the name of Death,
    For the stillness hov'ring,'til sharp word starts
    Soul from her...

    It's so cruel of them to include reprehensible characters. ;) I was pleased to get who I have always identified with: Emma. Not so pleased to get Elton for the male. When I take this quiz I always...

    Thanks, those are helpful suggestions. That "and" was probably partly there to keep the meter, but could be replaced or omitted.

    A Cofession of Faith

    I believe in the immortal
    Sky that is one, and four, and all;
    That in panoply and parade
    Changeth not. I believe surging
    Grey -- conquering and to conquer --
    Is but the counterpoint of sun.
    I...

    In the (second?) collection of Alcott's thrillers, "Plots and Counterplots", there's a story about drug use - hashish, I think. Looking at the contents of the book, I'm pretty sure it's the story...

    Yeah, burn me again.



    Lol. You're clever enough to get out.



    Perspicacious basically means "discerning" or "penetratingly perceptive". So actually eagle-eyed works too. ;)
