The Yeatsian

Poetry & Lyricism "A line will take us hours maybe; Yet if it does not seem a moment's thought, Our stitching and unstitching has been naught." WB Yeats "Adam's Curse"

I'm in my second marriage to a wonderful woman, my beautiful wife! I thank God everyday He brought her to me! "Restore us, O God of hosts: Cause Your face to shine, And we shall be saved!" PSALM 80

Time Traveler

For ten months now, with a dreadful tread,
Have I beaten the boards, cudgelled my brain,
And cried and prayed, to know the mercy of the gods,

But all I have to show, for the madness in my veins,
Is your name on my lips--the sound of my hope--
And tears of shame.
