Sublime words about life, love, and soul--from two of the best poets who never met (but what if they had??) Scroll with care...let it all sink in...think, but not too much...then go watch the Three Stooges or something. Soul, Wilt Thou Toss Again by Emily Dickinson Soul, wilt thou toss again? By just such a hazard Hundreds have lost, indeed, But tens have won an all. Angels' breathless ballot Lingers to record thee; Imps in eager caucus Raffle for my soul. _________ And Bob D. (on the same subject, perhaps?) with my favorite-from Oh Mercy: If I can Stop One Heart from Breaking --Emily D. If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain; If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain. What Good am I? written by Bob Dylan, performed by (shh! it's a surprise!) _________ Plus, also, in addition--a Bonus (today only I promise): OK I never do this. But if I may, just this once, let me exploit this forum to promote one of my old songs--(for educational purposes only). Check out my 'answer song' (from 1992) to "Man in the Long Black Coat." Go to, click on "music" and then "Artifacts of Love," then listen to The Blue-Eyed Men.
