    Okay, one more time and then I'm outta here!

    (Hey you're supposed to say SOMETHING!)


    Deep into the woods dark and damp and deep
    Creatures vie with nature for their troubled sleep
    Summer rain falls slowly through branches and leaves
    To make melody, the troubled souls of men to appease

    Come sweet gentle elixir of life
    And drench the earth till her bosom be rife
    With creatures without end, low and high
    And taunt mortal man with his brief, fleeting life

    For no other sound on earth I believe
    Rivals that of slow, sweet rain on autumn's leaves
    It gives anguished men a brief reprieve
    From knowledge that he too, one day will cease

    For such is the temperance of this our life
    For joys and ecstacies that may chance by
    For dreams and hopes that sustain us through the night
    Death in the end is the price of life.

    You definitely have a gift.

    Thank you very much, Red. It's nice of you to say that.

    Your poetry is quite lovely. And that's quite a complement coming from me 'cause I've never liked poetry - it takes too much thinking to understand it.

    I would assume it takes a lot more to actually envision it.

    Thank you for sharing your visions.

    Thank you, waiting.
