    The more I read poems by Dickinson, the more I like them.

    Thanks for the thread. I just though the poem might refer to war, but it provided the background.
    I think I prefer Poe´s poems to his short stories.

    A reference to William Wallace... one of my great Grandfathers was named after him. A bawdy poem if ever I read.

    Reread the poem. Indeed! I must have read it in a hurry without understanding much( Iliked the Scottish dialect) or I wouldn´t have chosen it.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Wallace. Have you Scottish ascendancy?

    Enjoyed the Christmas poem.

    Yes to Scottish ancestry on my Father's side... possibly on my Mother's side - but mostly English & Irish there.

    Cavafy is quite a surprise... found a webpage that explains the poet and his poem (about halfway down the page). Humor and history, amongst others, a recurring theme. I laughed inwardly with this passage from another poem:
    The speaker of “In a Township of Asia Minor” has just dictated a lavishly flattering proclamation in honor of Anthony’s anticipated victory at Actium. Learning that Octavius has defeated Anthony, the speaker merely instructs his amanuensis to substitute Octavius’s name for Anthony’s, adding “It all fits brilliantly.”

    LoL! Cavafy seems to be very familiar with politics! While I write I can hear the political propaganda outside. Elections next month maybe the most important of our republican times. Asking for prayers!

    "I want water" is an interesting and very opportune poem.
