Subject: Happy! – Feb 22 (Edy Millay / Thackray)
From: Abby Sale
Date: 22 Feb 06 - 07:47 AM

Happy Birthday!

Poetatrix Edna St Vincent Millay

was born 2/22/1892

        Said Elena Saint Vincent Millay
        As she lay in the hall all asplay,
        "If you can make wine
        From these grapes I opine,
        We'll stay in this barn until May!"

                 Ribald Limericks, Discovery Books (San Francisco) ©1961 by Jerry Kamstra

[The sole source of our income at one time was selling this paricular book from bar to bar in San Francisco.
Not many sales, but a whole lot of free beers.]

Singer/songwriter Jake Thackray

was born in Yorkshire on February 22, 1938
(died on Christmas Eve 2002)

        I, the under-mentioned, by this document do declare my true intentions,
        My last will, my testament.
        when I turn up my toes,
        when I rattle my clack, when I agonise, I want no great wet weepings
        No tearing of hair, no wringing of hands
        No sighs, no lack-a-days
        No woe-is-me's and none of your sad adieus.
        Go go go and get the priest
        And then go get the booze, boys.

From: Obit in the Daily Telegraph – thanx Nigel Parsons of Mudcat
