    All Nature seems at work. Slugs leave their lair - Work Without Hope by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. ~ Edgar Allan Poe

    Enjoyed "Work Without Hope"... "A Short Analysis of Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s ‘Work without Hope’"... https://interestingliterature.com/20...mary-analysis/

    To An Unborn Pauper Child Quite mellancholy - Wikipedia: "Many of Hardy's poems deal with themes of disappointment in love and life, and "the perversity of fate", but the best of them present these themes with "a carefully controlled elegiac feeling".[49]"

    The first lines caught my eye, naturally. I really enjoyed the Autumn imagery of the poem.

    Sorry, tailor and Muse! A typical senior blunder! When I wrote post # 198 it was on a space on page 13 before post #. What I totally forgot is that the post would not appear on that place but be published only on page fourteen after intervening posts including the #197 it was referring too! Going to edit it.

    Hope your young head is fine after so much smacking, tailor!

    "young"... lol

    "'The Dark Angel'" is a very dense and dark poem... found some understanding here: https://www.thedarkfortress.co.uk/li...p#.YtPL9DHMLIU

    "The Philosopher" - another incredible poem "--Still to my Death will say/Three Gods within this little frame/Are warring night and day"... more struggle.

    Interesting poem "An Online Friend Dies Somewhere Outside the Internet". I believe it is the first poem about internet relationships that I read. Love this Canada based site.

    Enjoyed Finis... reminded me of today's gospel lesson in the Old Testament ( 2 Kings chapter 20... https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/...gs/20?lang=eng ) where Hezekiah is told by the Prophet Isaiah that he will die soon and Hezekiah pleads with the Lord to lengthen his life... it worked !!

    The map was improved this time by a photograph of Forest Hill station. But couldn't find the poem itself, not even by googling it.

    Weird... Here's the poem
    Forest Hill Station (by) Yasemin Balandi

    Junkies line up by the infant day;
    Insomniac, achnied.
    Conductors speak in tongues
    Banal, hackneyed.

    A graffito declares peace
    On the weeping walls
    In magenta and peach
    Another declares "Love is phat!"

    The ceiling above is laced
    With pigeon mess
    Passengers greet each other
    Talk about weather forecast

    Our beloved Forest Hill Station:
    With your quirks and
    Amusing history
    (For your tracks were
    Water carriers once)
    We love you dearly.
    King David... a sweet poem.

    Thanks! Loved Forest Station! Emerson´s poem is a gem of beauty and wisdom! Going to look for more by him.
