PRILEP, Yugoslavia (AP) -- Outside a small Macedonian village close to the border between Greece and strife-torn Yugoslavia, a lone Catholic nun keeps a quiet watch over a silent convent. She is the last caretaker of the site of significant historical developments spanning more than 2,000 years.

When Sister Maria Cyrilla of the Order of the Perpetual Watch dies, the convent of St. Elias will be closed by the Eastern Orthodox Patriarch of Macedonia.

However, that isn't likely to happen soon as Sister Maria, 53, enjoys
excellent health.

By her own estimate, she walks 10 miles daily about the grounds of the
convent, which once served as a base for the army of Attila the Hun. In more ancient times, a Greek temple to Eros, the god of love, occupied the hilltop site. Historians say that Attila took over the old temple in 439 A.D. and used it as a base for his marauding army.

The Huns are believed to have first collected and then destroyed a large gathering of Greek legal writs at the site.

It is believed that Attila wanted to study the Greek legal system, and
had the writs and other documents brought to the temple. Scholars
differ on why he had the valuable documents destroyed--either because he was barely literate and couldn't read them, or because they provided evidence of democratic government that did not square with his own notion of rule by an all-powerful tyrant.

When the Greek church took over the site in the 15th Century and the
convent was built, church leaders ordered the pagan statue of Eros
destroyed, so another ancient Greek treasure was lost. Today, there is only the lone sister, watching over the old Hun base.

And that's how it ends: No Huns, no writs, no Eros, and nun left on
base.

Said Sister Maria was once much younger--back just after the War she survived the ebbs and flows of military might across the borders once trampled by the Huns. In a human interest story, her then Mothert Superior was interviewed by a London reporter about the tribulations experienced by the sisters during the War.

"Vel, ya know, first ting, da Chermans swept down into Macedonia and camped all dere troops and tanks in der orchards, ate up the pigs and chickens and raped all der nuns, except for Sister Maria Cyrilla ."

"Den der partisans rose up and camped in der forest behind the convent. At night dey came down and swept up all der chickens and piugs to eat, and raped all der nuns. Except for Sister Maria Cyrilla ."

"My God!" said the reporter. "How terrible!!"

"Oh, ya. Den der Chermans drove de partisans out and moved into der orchard again, ate up der cows and raped all der nuns, Except for Sister Maria Cyrilla ."

"Wow! What happened next??"

"Vell, once der Allies came up through Italy and drove de Chermans back to Berlin, part ofd the American Army moved in to liberate the country, undt DEY parked deir trucks in der orchard and ate all der apples and chickens, and raped all der nuns. Except for Sister Maria Cyrilla ."

"This sister-- did you say Sister Maria Cyrilla ? -- must be very holy indeed to have been left unscathed through all these horrible events!!"

"Ya, vell, ya know... Sister Maria Cyrilla --she doesn't go in for dot kind of thing....".

Good lord! I find that a tad silly (you are working a 40 hour week at the liberry too?). I was gonna say, "What a buncha pricks!" but I am a gentleman I am.

When I did my masters in Engineering I had to give at least five 30 minute presentaions a week as well as attened a minimum of 36 credit hours of classes but I was a full time student on a paid Assistanceship.

Ya gotta see this ride man. 36 inch mudders and 4 ton Warn's front and back with rased pullies sos ya can lift er straight up a pine.

Geez! That is a pretty cool pitcher you posted there fer my future weddin', Rap. It has got me thinkin' some.

I ain't never been married before. So it might, like, be a cool thing to do, eh?

On toppa that this here Sheryl and her nutcase old man are becomin' a problenm that is way hard to, like, deal with, cos they are flippin' bent on me marryin' her, eh? And the old man might shoot me too, if'n I don't do right by her. I can't see lettin' that happen!

So maybe I should, like, bite the bullet and do it...

It would be majerly cool to have some little McBride kids runnin' around here, and I know that if I had a son I could, like, teach him all the stuff he needs to know, like, about growin' dope and drivin' snowmobiles and rollin' smokes and stuff. I could, like, groom him, eh? To, like, follow in my footsteps. Or if it was a daoughter, then...well, I would hafta get some advise on that from maybe Officer Dana or someone. There are the talent shows over at the Iron Horse, eh? The girls who win get to be servers there sometimes, long as they can, like, balance a tray with 12 beer on it.

The thing, is...gettin' married is a majer step and ya gotta be preepared to erne a desent livin' for yuerself and the fambly. I can't see Cheryl doin' much besides maybe workin' at the Timmies or the Vareyity store or somethin'...and anyways, she will be havin' to handle the baby fer awhiles...till he gets weened on to the beer, eh?

So that puts the load on me.

This means I am gonna have to take the bull by the mungoberries and bare DOWN!

I got a plan I am workin' on. Just wait and see.

The classic sonnet--14 lines, ABABCDCDEFEFGG rhyming pattern, often in iambic pentameter--is defined as much by the nobility of its sentiment as by the lines of its structure. Some stirring examples:

"That time of year thou may'st in me behold..."
"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?"
"When Rapparree pretends to know it all..."

Amos, are you referring to Petrachean, Shakespearian, Spenserian, or the "undefinable" type of sonnet? Each, of course, has its strengths and weaknesses, especially I suppose in English. The basic English iambic pentameter metric, compared with, say, the Italianate form, does lend itself well to the "Two S'es" forms, but the Petrachean seems to be more in vogue on the continent. And then of course there is the "undefinables"...you might well fit in there.
