    re: What is wrong with your usual browser? Litnet page lacerated?
    Suggestions if the problem appears again with Safari:
    Litnet works on Duck Duck, Sea Monkey and probably Midori. They are all very jurasic and therefore Google or Whatever canīt disfunctionalize Litnet. I use them only for LitNet, for other sites I use a modern browser

    re; Thanks for the analysis which shows that the poem is typical for the 19C. The bio of the author brought some surprises:

    re: Browser - Jurassic, lol. This page wasn't allowing any replies for some reason and I couldn't get a work-around using Opera. Opera had been a bit wonky on earlier pages and I had to keep signing... so this page only I resorted to old Safari for Windows and it allowed me to post... wonder if Opera will work on this page today... find out in a second...

    Ab-so-tively lovely poem by HWL... Reminds me for my Thursdays at Two poetry group today I'm sharing Trees by Joyce Kilmer for our segment of sharing a poem by another poet:

    1886 - 1918 Kilmer published his last poetry collection, Main Street and Other Poems (George H. Doran Company, 1917), the same year he enlisted in the U.S. Army to serve in World War I, during which time he continued to write poems while fighting in the Sixty-Ninth Regiment. He died of a gunshot from a German sniper on July 30, 1918. -wikipedia

    I think that I shall never see
    A poem lovely as a tree.
    A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
    Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
    A tree that looks at God all day,
    And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
    A tree that may in summer wear
    A nest of robins in her hair;
    Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
    Who intimately lives with rain.
    Poems are made by fools like me,
    But only God can make a tree.
    (poem in the public domain)

    Thanx... I'll check the links out

    Enjoyed ! Didn't know England had a Lake District, though one reads of their many rivers. I look at the proximity to other countries and am amazed. Hard to believe England is so much smaller than California in area... It's stature is so much greater.
