    Thank you for cat Villon, book and illustration. . Of course I'll read the whole book. The "o" poem comes tomorrow, when I am on PC.

    Sorry! The delay was due to the mistaken supposition that it was your turn.
    I'll posr the new poem tomorrow, when on PC.

    I've had to change the web browser several times to be able to access the normal Litnet page. Just now using "Sea Monkey", an old and more simple browser and it has worked up to now.

    LoL! Kudoz for finding one more "X" poem (after "z" I guess it is the most difficult letter for starting a first line.)

    A longing nostalgic poem of a place once hated by the poet https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Hugh_Clough
    I'm trying to understand the last line "You were underneath me now!" in context with the time period of his short life (1 January 1819 Liverpool; Died 13 November 1861 Florence, Italy)

    Hoping this isn't a repeat:
