Well hang it all Robert Browning…

Cover of Planet of the Blind....man and dog....

Well hang it all Robert Browning I can’t find my scrofulous French novels!

Dag Nabbit, Ludwig VB, your piano concertos are too darned beautiful!

The little boy me, blind and alone, used to put his head inside the works of a grandfather clock.

“how sad and bad and mad it was – but then, how it was sweet”
― Robert Browning

Elegy

Washing birds is the work of the gods
They’ve been at it some thirty thousand years
One may reasonably believe
Birds were not clean
Before rain gods came
I stand before a plate glass window
Drinking coffee from a paper cup
Many of my friends are gone
Leaves whirl under a streetlamp
Death’s butterflies
I’ve a hymn in mind
Called I Must be Home by Now…

“Take away love and our earth is a tomb.”
― Robert Browning

Beethoven invented Ragtime.
