Just a thought tossed to the sea before I leave. You may insert "He" if you choose...
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 22, 2002, 8:21 PM 2 of 106

It was her voice that made
The sky acutest at its vanishing.
She measured to the hour its solitude.
She was the single artificer of the world
In which she sang. And when she sang, the sea,
Whatever self it had, became the self
That was her song, for she was the maker. Then we,
As we beheld her striding there alone,
Knew that there never was a world for her
Except the one she sang and, singing, made.

Wallace Stevens' words, not mine. But think about them -- and be well. I'll see you in June. <smile>

Come play with me my sonnet loves, and make
New verse, and stories new. No bound'ries here.

Your voices now are finely tuned.
So use them, and the world renew.

The entire PORTAL crumbled into tiny shards of glass . . . the size of grains of sand.

IN THE MATTER OF TEA LEAVES FOR SONNETS
Posted by: forensicpopouri - May 22, 2002, 8:01 PM 23 of 106


If forensicpopouri or any worldly site
of judgement . . . were to assign a value
denominated in Tea Leaves etc
for the quality of a sonnet . . .
THEN
God, him/her-self . . . would revoke my licence.

Is that clear? <serious smile>



Let's Go ladies...
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 22, 2002, 8:00 PM 24 of 106

Hold hands, be strong now.
And we'll go through.

No talk of sonnets.

Just teases and clues

Can't pass through portal.

Do get ready, take some breaths.

If portal stays closed
I'll slow time, then we shall pass
Together, with strength.

We'll go at the very end.



The Ballad of Tea Time
Posted by: yelnif - May 22, 2002, 7:58 PM 30 of 106

Right.... time for me to sing. To hell with verse, I am now the minstrel. And a rebel! <g>


TO THE TUNE OF SPIKE'S "REST IN PEACE" (OMWF)

I used to be so good in school
But Tea Time made me change all that, made me break the rules
Now I lie there asleep in Maths, looking like a fool.

I stayed awake until midnight
Writing awful poems on a Buffy website
Trying hard to get the number of syllables right!

(But now...)
He's let me rest in peace.
Now I can rest in peace, I can get some sleep,
I can bury my rhyming dictionary in a hole six foot deep,
I can lay my body down and now my bad poems will cease
Because I can rest in peace!

I know
I should go
But now I've been drawn into the game
Non-poetic life just seems so tame
And my nights now will not be the same
I will miss FP (and his many names)
I'll leave now as the one I came,
a non-poet whose verse is lame!

I can rest in peace, I can get some sleep
I can bury my rhyming dictionary in a hole six foot deep
I can lay my body down and now my bad poems will cease
Because he's letting me rest in peace!

BV to VR
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 22, 2002, 7:53 PM 41 of 106

We had a plan to give VR 3 leaves
Per sonnet she wrote. But words from F
That there was fraud distracted us from it.
I say we give VR all she deserves,
In other words at least fifteen TL.



Of course, no reward for tasks that do me good.
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 22, 2002, 7:52 PM 42 of 106

The benefit is

I've browsed my sonnets dear, and I do hope
it does not stand for Red, or Rack, or -- Rat!
Though Red, I'll take, or Scarlet, that's quite fine.
Though I must say to be called Rhymer, would be....
Divine. <smile>

I'd give a try, boldly go through the wall
If all my friends did is as well. Who cares
If our noses get damag'd a bit.
We will give up much to get some answers.



QUESTION: Why did VR never get Tea Leaves for her sonnets?

out of the mouths of both Hollywood players and

Internet venture capitalists . . . who have no idea

what a good idea is.


No sour grapes. I've listened to them talk about how execution

is the key to success. That there are good ideas just piling up everywhere.


BOTTOM LINE: Remember the Internet bubble.
I spoke with many of these clueless geniuses before it fell.
Their complete incompetence to judge quality of an idea
was plain.

Same with Hollywood.

Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 22, 2002, 7:21 PM 82 of 106

Oracle, hello? are you here?
This verse is meant for you my dear.
Not Iambic, yes, I know
But other ways we can go.

Formal verse, all types, allowed.
That's what the rules you gave avowed
IP's preferred, you made that clear
And haiku too, you hold quite dear.

But O, this form was used by Keats
And so, I think the rules it meets.

So O, do tell, how's it end?
Have sinning slayers made amends?
Are we now chosen, we happy few?
Do we now learn what we shall do?



Perhaps you're wondering what the holyman said in court . . . What your 25 Tea Leaves bought?
