Posting TSE's poetry
Didn't upset me at all.
 enjoyed it muchly. I was simply commenting
on the current condition of whatit was describing.
 
The egg isn't just coked, it's hard bolied by now.
 
Cheers,
Peter

I regret that posting a poem by TSE seems to have upset Peter and Gunar.
Should I tell you about my winter instead? That seems to be a big feature of the list.
Far too chilly for me, I fear.

Aidan Harman

Do not let me hear
Of the wisdom of old, but rather of their folly,
Their fear of fear and frenzy, their fear of possession,
Of belonging to another, or to others, or to God.
The only wisdom we can hope to acquire
Is the wisdom of humility: humility is endless.
