13 Years Ago


Hi guys, I've pulled together two stanzas, and I'm bleeding profusely,, kidding I'm not, not really, but I am finding the re write rather painful, before this turns into a full on homicide of even vague literature does anyone just one person even, want to tell me if they think my patient will survive the surgery, or if I should just close it up and give it a few months to live. ::biggrin::

13 Years Ago


OUT of the focal and foremost fire,
Out of the hospital walls as dire;
Smitten of grape-shot and gangrene,
. . .
Spectre! such as you seldom see, 5
. . .
�Take him and welcome!� the surgeons said;
Little the doctor can help the dead!
So we took him; and brought him where
The balm was sweet in the summer air; 10
And we laid him down on a wholesome bed,�
Utter Lazarus, heel to head!
. . .
Months of torture, how many such? 15
Weary weeks of the stick and crutch;
And still a glint of the steel-blue eye
Told of a spirit that would n�t die,
And didn�t. Nay, more! in death�s despite
The crippled skeleton �learned to write.�

The poet is Francis Orray Ticknor. Sorry, couldn't help it. The patient will survive. The poet? Now that's another question altogether.

Just kidding. You'll both do nicely.
