    Terrific stuff! I guess being son of an attorney this is not his natural accent, but maybe he spoke both fluently. He makes you feel you are lying there with him looking up and around at what he is seeing, and enjoying his wit. (Report) Reply

    I can certainly identify with Mr. Riley's thoughts here. In this fast-paced time we suffer in today there is precious little time to just lay back and rest and enjoy the moment. Loved the poem. (Report) Reply

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
