I went to the library. I requested two books. Jack London “When God laugh” and Any book written by John Dryden. I was told. Neither book in the metro Detroit area. I thoughts this was a disappointmen

“Beware the fury of a patient man.”
― John Dryden
“I’m a little wounded, but I am not slain; I will lay me down to bleed a while. Then I’ll rise and fight again.”
― John Dryden
Love is love’s reward.”
― John Dryden
“Dancing is the poetry of the foot.”
― John Dryden
But dying is a pleasure / When living is a pain.”
― John Dryden
There is an ecstasy that marks the summit of life, and beyond which life cannot rise. And such is the paradox of living, this ecstasy comes when one is most alive, and it comes as a complete forgetfulness that one is alive.
                                        JACK LONDON
Limited minds can recognize limitations only in others.
                      Jack London
“I write for no other purpose than to add to the beauty that now belongs to me. I write a book for no other reason than to add three or four hundred acres to my magnificent estate.”
 Jack London 

 

I do tell the young writers. Write and write some more. Write for god, write for the ancient ones gone. Write for the warm Spring days. Write for love and write for sadness. Write names of people lost on paper and tell their story.  Please don’t forget the ancient writers. The first word-men and women laid the ground for us. Write and write some more. Tell of great victories and defeat. Write words describing love, dance and sweet kisses. The words need to be spread. If no-one speak of love and peace. The kind and sweet words can be forgotten. Please write my friend. Write from the heart and the soul. If we never had cried or laughs? Have we lived.

 

Katie

Kiss me katie. Not once but twice by the light of the moon.

Sweet Katies please dance for me by the lights of the gentle candles.

Make me know what beauty can be.

Show me love is true and tender.

Kiss me katie. Kiss me twice. Lets me know I’m alive.

In your embrace I want to live and die.
