I, of course, have always known
how Sweet and Sharp is Ally,
whether flying over Somerset
or the dryland Ozzhobbit Mallee!

Her eye is keen - both of them! Very Happy -
her lips exude a mist profound,
and her smile - slightly ambiguous -
would light Heaven! - and what a lovely noun!

Her legs are carved in Poet's Language,
Her lips taste of the richest liquor ---
This I but assume, for these lips have never
touched her lips - yet! oh how my heart does flicker

at the thought! But all I have's her photo,
Gorgeous Ally! Princess Delectable!
(I would say how my body yearns for her,
but let's keep this thing Respectable!)

Oh such a quick mind, resplendant
with Wisdom, and Art beyond her years!
I sit, wallowing in my Love of Her,
while growing old; filled with tears!
Sad

"An Ode for Ally So Fine" - by William Wordsworth (if only he had have had of Crying or Very sad )

Needhole Town
In Needlehole, and there's no one around
No one from Europe, not a soul around
No one from America, not a soul around
To show me the path to the fair Needlehole Town

I rode in on a steed, fair and fine
I sat atop, magisterially riding
All manner of beasts a'hiding
To Needlehole Town I was a'gliding

Along the path, no friendly faces did I see
Alas, no one, except my horse looking at me
As if the day could get no worse
I found no river to quench my thirst.

In the dark a man a'stood
hovering amongst the trees
I walked over and asked
"The way to Needlehole Town, please?"

He lit a candle and away we went
a mossy slope we did go a'down
I wondered if the man was good at geography;
and asked: "Is this the way to Needlehole town?"

"Obviously! How did you get so lost?" he retorted
"But I do love the look of you and your horse!"
We both blushed, not used to being courted
I said "Am I dreaming?" and he said "Of course!"
and on we went to Needlehole Town.



(((The legend goes that the girl who wrote this had a strange dream featuring her favourite poet, and just had to write it down! Glad she did! Nod Rolling Eyes
Possibly slightly based on this...and inspired by this great cover I found on youtube! Again, thanks for all the poems Wisey!!)))

I sat upon the peppermint grass
but words of my heart
could not be masked
by Encryption Spell

or any other Forumshire subterfuge.
I thought of her vital lips
(Methinks! hued in subtle rouge! I love you )

and contemplated the fine
circumference of her Rhyme;

"Oh Blessed Eru Iluvatar" I cried (inside)
- as I laid back then, on peppermint grass -
"Ally is the very Lass of Mine Own Heart,
Verily I name her, 'Channeler' (First Class!)

cheers

{{{{Dear Ally,

I have received an urgent text via mini-palantir. Wisey tells me you have been inspired and influenced by - and possibly may have ever-so-slightly-plagiarized - some song an Old Cooter (who looks remarkably similarly aged to Wisey -and almost as Hippiezized! Shocked ) in a certain Rather Lovely Poem of Yours.

This of course is a terribly reprenhensible crime - especially when employing the Arcane Art of Channeling (Mind you, this is all coming from Wisey, "Channelin'' being all so much twaddle to me! Rolling Eyes )

Anyhow, if you are indeed Gulity of the forementioned crime - and it being such a reprensible practice - Wisey tells Me, to tell You, to NEVER EVER ADMIT YOU'RE DOING IT! No

yours Helpfully,
Odo R. Banks, esquire}}}

dangerous channelin' - if only

If only I had a spell,
as such,
that would turn wisey
into a much younger Lad -
brawny to touch -

still with 'Channelin' mind, mind!
with which to lure
that hobbit lass of Poetic bent
behind the bushes -
with vastly impure intent!

yes, He might lure that lass
behind said bushes when they met -
and i could post palantiri photos
on the internet....

Oh Sweet Blessed Eru
how can it be so
that a respectable channeler
can verily know

of many things o' beauty
but crassness too
as if they could be both Divine
and Darkly embued?

Or cool, serene, pure,
but hot, lusty, and gropy -
fast action, dead still,
Live Action but --- entropy!

A Paradox -
or but a spark of My
Basic Animal Nature?
Am I both Smart and Stupid
Both Good and Bad? -
or is it merely
(a case)
of Nomenclature?
Shrugging

Oh Sweet Eru!
the penny dropped!
the Heart of Channelin'
revealed;

channelin -
that Mystery! -
is indeed made up
of Three ---

the physical

the free

and (of course)

what's truly beyond Me!

how simple
how plain
how humdrum

how glad I am
to see the mist
desist -
thus revealed:
the sun


sunny

I'm sick of being treated like an adult who can make her own decisions; but please explain that one. It's gone completely over my head.

Its a Life of Brian qoute Ally.

And at 18 you are an adult- think yourself lucky couple hundred years ago youd have been working in mine at 8- married at 12 and have 3 kids by now. Actually take the work and marriage out of that and not much has changed in the world!!

It's the dungeon scene in Life of Brian. Here it is:

JAILER: Ehhh.

CENTURION: Pilate wants to see you!

BRIAN: Me?

CENTURION: Come on!

BRIAN: Pilate? What does he want to see me for?

CENTURION: I think he wants to know which way up you want to be crucified.

BEN: Oh, ha ha ha haa! Ha haa! Nice one, Centurion. Like it. Like it.

CENTURION: Shut up!

BEN: Right. Right. Terrific race, the Romans. Terrific.

I obviously wasn't very responsive to that line! I don't know about working in a mine bit though- I like to imagine I was some sort of Austen's heroine! Maybe a bit like Catherine Morland, though knowing my luck, Henry would probably perish in some sort of freak accident, the day after the marriage! Though I guess being a happy miner's wife beats being an unhappy upperclass widow I don't even know why I'm thinking about this, Lol...

I'm old fashioned enough to use a phone for talking, not writing! Mad Only thing I type into a phone is the number I'm dialling. I dont approve of mobiles- they make me crabbit. Mad

Me too, but maybe not for the same reasons. drunken

I dont want to be contactable 24/7, if I want to talk to someone I will, if they need to get in touch leave me a message on line, I'm on most of the time (even when I'm not here Shocked ). What I don't want is a phone ringing regardless of where I am or what I'm doing. And yes you can ignore it, but then you still feel complelled to check and see who it was, then you worry it might have been important (never is) then you get stressed.
Bollocks to that. Life was once more much better the day I threw mine in the bin. cheers I heartily recoomend it.
