Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Add: Michael Collins (not again)
Subject: RE: Michael Collins (not again)
belfast, many thanks. I vote for choice (3) above -- but much closer to (1) than (2). // Candidates on my ballot for Number One btw would include among others Tone, Yeats, and na gCopaleen aka O'Brien aka O'Nolan. (And, I'd have to give a sentimental transfer vote to the late great Governor of my great state of Connecticut, John Noel Dempsey, born in the county Tipperary. Um that *is* in Ireland, right? :) // But the Greatest Irishman Who Ever Lived is Queen Maeb. She took on all the Kings and laid 'em low. :)
Fiolar, thanks for that info. Wonderful. / The Morrigan emigrated to far Philadelphia at one time y'know -
And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming.
And the lamplight o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted---nevermore!
- E.A. Poe
