In honour of the day that's in it

Ho, for a stiff wind in Donegal Bay,
Then clear up the rigging and anchors aweigh!
I never thought I'd see the day
I'd set sail with Brendan O'Riley.smiley - piratesmiley - goodluck

Look ahead, look astern, look the weather in the lee,
Blow high, blow low, and so sailed we -
I see a sail to windward and a saucy ship to lee,
A-salin' down on the coast of High Barbary.

Then weigh, ho, the anchor, and sail the seventh sea,
From Portsmouth Bay to Old Cathay, and back to Barbary.
O lass, I loved your mother, when first she was my bride,
But I love you more upon the shore, and the law is on my side.

Happy International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Hoist the Jolly Roger!

The Highwayman (With Apologies to Bela Bartok This Time)

(faintly the hoofbeats sound, soft over dusty ground)

Pale quarter-moon does rise, low in the autumn skies,
As a coach comes riding all alone down the King's Highway.

(over the dusty plain, loudly, then soft again)

Hurry the horse's feet - that coach and I must meet,
Rendezvous at midnight at the turn in the King's Highway.

(turn swiftly, ride away - galloping, gallop - stay.)

A Ray of Hope

Hope has appeared on the horizon, in the form of the candidacy of Hypatia for President. smiley - cheers

The Ozark party has a great platform. Come and view it at A5645531!

Tolerance, diversity and better working conditions for hamsters! Who could argue with that?smiley - biggrin

(And if you don't know who the original Hypatia was, look it up!)

A Riddle (More Apologies to Billy Joel)

Tell me, what is the sound of a single heart breaking,
When the fires have gone out, and your body is aching,
And you wonder when love died, and long to be free,
And to feel good again, but it won’t be in this galaxy.

They can bring you to tears, they can leave you such sorrow
That you wish you were dead, but there’s always tomorrow,
They’re all of them blind, and they won’t learn to see –
There’ll be justice some day, but it won’t be in this galaxy.

Oh, and they don’t even care if the stars all go out and the universe dies –
Oh, and it makes you despair to hear men of the world utter so many lies…

They mean to be kind, but they’re frequently cruel,
They think that their reason’s infinity’s jewel,
They find themselves wise in the furthest degree –
And their reasons are deep, they’ve a promise to keep,
But it won’t be in this galaxy.

Peace

the earth is blue against the black of space,
and clean and soft, with sunlight in her hair -
civil and silent is the human race.

far from our ship revolves, in measured pace,
the queen of planets, stately, pleasant, fair -
the earth is blue against the black of space.

from home the pictures on our console trace
war rumours, murder, hatred - but out there
civil and silent is the human race.

here, up and down there is none, and her face
send radiating visions, who knows where?
the earth is blue against the black of space.

our mother with this distance grows in grace,
her violence gives way to empty air.
the earth is blue against the black of space -
civil and silent is the human race.
