"Do you not see how necessary a world of Pains
and Troubles is to school an Intelligence
and make it a soul?
A Place where the heart must feel and suffer
in a thousand diverse ways!
Not merely is the Heart a Hornbook,
it is the Mind's Bible."
Greetings to all poets, toads, travellers... Yes, this is Kerry in the garden again, after what seems like weeks adrift on a strange sea. For those who know of my travails, and who sent me so much positive energy, I thank you. Your messages of goodwill and encouragement helped me to keep afloat. The good news is that I am recovering well, though my recuperation is not yet complete.
Enough of me and over to you... As always the platform is an open forum for sharing a poem of your choice. This site is an ethereal place but the people who meet here are flesh, blood and thought. This makes us a community in the very real sense of the word, and I am eternally grateful that I am a part of it.
