Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
From a long-lost Southern gentlemen, who wrote poems:
"Wait, wait-as though a finger were placed to lips
The first star petals timidly in what
Is not yet darkness. That audacity
Will be rewarded soon. In this transitional light,
While cinders in the west die, the world
Has its last blooming. Let your soul
Be still. All day it has curdled in your bosom
Denatured by intrusion of truth or lie, or both.
Lay both aside, nor debate their nature. Soon,
While not even a last bird twitters, the last bat goes.
Even the last motor fades into distance. The promise
or moonrise will dawn, and slowly, in all fullness, the moon
Will dominate the sky, the world, the heart,
In white forgiveness."
