Happy St. Patrick's Day!

The Irish are known for having a way with language, and in his own special way,

Willie is as intoxicating as any alcoholic beverage.

 

 

Once out of nature I shall never take

My bodily form from any natural thing,

But such a form as Grecian goldsmiths make

Of hammered gold and gold enamelling

To keep a drowsy Emperor awake;

Or set upon a golden bough to sing

To lords and ladies of Byzantium

Of what is past, or passing, or to come.

h4. Pre-Raphaelites, anyone?

W. B. Yeats. Thank you. I hope you post some more too.

I'll see if I can dig up some *Pre-Raphaelites* -Don't know if it's a challenge or not.

I never have heard of an Irish poet that didn't produce reams of prose..

Willie was also a renowned playwright. He did add to the mass of Irish prose also,

with a series of autobiographical writings, including a poignant account of his

childhood in Ireland. He also had a lifelong interest in various forms of mysticism,

which he outlined in many prose writings.

How I love Sean Connery. . . Especially when he plays Celebrity Jeopardy with Alex (Will Farrell) on SNL.. The best!

Bellies and Belly (On Nicola thread)? How cosmic of you, Sineaste.

Is it me, or does St Patrick's Day usually seem to fall mid-week? It doesn't seem to come on the weekend enough.

 

Did you see the green menu? I just didn't see green, but I felt it.. indigestion...
