    1. Just in case you clicked on the image rather than the link below, I've embedded a link in the image as well. Made in Safari, and I just checked with someone else, and it worked for him.... So maybe something else was at issue?

  2. No link via Explorer. Sorry for the bad news.

    1. The link appears to be working fine. I wonder if their certificate is expired, and so your malware protection is doing its thing.

  3. You're probably right. I'll navigate via Bing and locate the poem at the site. Have a beautiful evening!

  4. Imagine my confusion when I misread "shared" for "shard" in the final stanza. Hmmmm. Ah, the mutability of words on the page as they move from the eyes to the mind.

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
