    Impressive snake necklaces!

    Wilhelm Busch! Besides poet one of the best German cartoonists ever. Here is his most famous poem. Itīs rather long. If you donīt have the time to read all of it, take a look at the cartoons. Itīs worthwhile: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/2884...-h/28847-h.htm

    re: Max and Maurice. Poor, poor Tailor ( with capital "T", for a better resistance) To complete your impressions on German educational books for children here is the English version of Struwwelpeter. I remember being mortally afraid of this book when I was a child.

    Square dance video/music was quite nice; very choral.

    Read "Struwwelpeter"... I can see why you were "mortally afraid"

    "Mignon": Dragons !

    Isabella Augusta https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_Gregory. Because of text and theme I thought she was from much earlier times, maybe the late Middle Ages, so I looked her up. An interesting Lady!

    Mignon! I stand before a riddle: Mignon is a character Goetheīs novel Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship). Itīs not quite clear to me whether the author of the poem is Goethe or Fletcher, or if one of them is the translator of it.

    Re: Isabella Augusta: Very accomplished during her long life !

    Re: Mignon... all things point to Goethe: https://mypoeticside.com/show-classic-poem-11503; see ("From Goethe" link on your page source also)

    Re: "The Moon is Up"... a bit ambivalent about the poem. Granted, a rousing sea shanty/poem, but with knowledge of the history of how they obtained their gold and maintained their governments tends to tarnish the bravado

    It's a google book result, hopefully it is accessible... the source page I found the first line had no links ?

    Re: My links - sorry, especially puzzled why the google book results are not accessible for you.

    Re: Oton de Granson - Enjoyed Thanks for the link ! I sense a political undertone leading to a loss of favor.

    re; Prolly because I donīt check in with Google Account> Silent war going on between me and Google account. Silent war between me and Google: I log in with my seldom used Google e-mail. Google declares "uncommon activity in your e-mail ( me logging in) and blocks my account from Microsoft, which now belongs to Google. So I avoid using that gmail.

    Enid Derham looks promising thanks for looking her up.

    Liked the defense of free verse (Plotz)

    Thanks! Got the impression. that Cargo was only a part of a larger poem. Love these old travel accounts because those travels were part of Brazilian history.

    Interesting dark poem by e.e. cummings
    The language reminds me of the German Expressionists:

    LOL! The same poem!
    Enjoyed the bilingual Drummond so much, several fav poems here!
    Fitting for my moment:
    "INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON FEAR

    For the time being we won’t sing of love,
    which has fled beyond all undergrounds.
    We’ll sing of fear, which sterilizes all hugs.
    We won’t sing of hatred, since it doesn’t exist,
    only fear exists, our father and our companion,
    the dread fear of hinterlands, oceans, deserts,
    the fear of soldiers, fear of mothers, fear of churches,
    we’ll sing of the fear of dictators, of democrats,
    we’ll sing of the fear of death and what’s after death,
    then we’ll die of fear,
    and fearful yellow flowers will sprout on our tombs."
