The Dragonflies'Lair ~ Thread LV ~ Anniversary Thread
Poets of the Lair | August 1, 2008 | Soaring Feather

Posted on 08/01/2008 6:23:53 AM PDT by Soaring Feather





My Dragonfly And Me


If I could be a Dragon Fly
and wing my way through the sky
I would never be shy
just me and my Dragon Fly!


By moonlight we ride the wind
chase the comets tail for fun
by day we would hide from the sun
our fragile wings would come undone


On darkest nights we would use
fireflies as our guide
we would dip and we would glide
through the heavens open wide
and scatter diamonds in the night sky
my Dragon Fly and me...


And we would wing past our lovers
silent in the night...
to kiss their face in our flight
much to their surprise and delight
my Dragon Fly and me in sight...


Such a view do we share
away up here in the air
of breezes soft through our hair
my Dragon Fly and me a pair...

I wonder what Sarah Palin's birthday is.

 

 

Lady Jag's Personal Horrorscope
for 
Saturday, August 30, 2008

It is quite untrue that British people don't appreciate music. They may not understand it but they absolutely love the noise it makes.

Sir Thomas Beecham



 

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Remember: people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. It's ok to throw mashed potatoes, however.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

You will write a newspaper article about the Internet today. Why not? Everybody else has.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Today you will discover a way to have your cake and eat it too! Unfortunately, everyone else will think that's really disgusting.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Beware of celery.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

You will spend today in a state of mild anxiety. Probably Ohio.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Life is beginning to get a bit stale, isn't it? Whenever that happens to me, I concoct some sort of prune-related recipe and send it off to the food editor of the local daily. You might give that a try.

Libra (September 22 - October 22)

Today you will develop a type of rubber overshoe that looks like dinosaur's feet. They will become wildly popular, after your appearance on the Letterman show.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

If you don't start flossing more often, the tooth fairy will be a constant companion. Start taking better care of yourself.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

You will make the startling discovery that most of the lawyers and judges in your county have been possessed by demons. In fact, they weren't kidding when they said that possession was nine tenths of the law...

Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)

Beware! The Celestial Jade Emperor may banish you to the Big Grumpy Place if you don't start paying more attention to the four Winds. Obviously, this is a metaphor, somehow involving Cleveland.

Aquarius (January 21 - February 18)

Good day to take up Rap music as a career. Either that or plumbing. (Most people are strangely unaware of the similarities.)

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

This might be a good time to recontextualize your imponderables. If you know what I mean.

Humph! Nothing mild about where I am. And it's nowhere near Ohio. ;-)

Wouldn't you rather be in Cleveland?


Ahhhhhh...
All this energy callin' me
Back where it comes from
It's such a crude attitude
It's back where it belongs

All the little kids growing up on the skids
Go "Cleveland rocks!", "Cleveland rocks!"
Jumpin' Jene Jene and Movin' James Dean
Go "Cleveland rocks!", "Cleveland rocks!"
"Cleveland rocks!", "Cleveland rocks!"
"Cleveland rocks!", "Cleveland rocks!"
"Cleveland rocks!", "Cleveland rocks!"

Mamma knows but she don't care
She's got her worries too
Seven kids and a phoneo player
And the rent too

All the little chicks with their chrimson lips
Go "Cleveland rocks!", "Cleveland rocks!"
Livin' in sin with a safety pin
Go "Cleveland rocks!", "Cleveland rocks!"
"Cleveland rocks!", "Cleveland rocks!"
"Cleveland rocks!", "Cleveland rocks!"
"Cleveland rocks!", "Cleveland rocks!"

I've got some records from World War II
I play 'em just like me grandad do
He was a rocker and I am too
Go "Cleeeveland rocks!"
"Yeah Cleeeveland rocks!"

Cleveland rocks!, Cleveland rocks!

Cleveland is dangerous but as soon as Sarah is elected she’ll straighten them right out.

I printed out the "McWhatshisname - PALIN" graphic someone put up on FR earlier today and taped it on the cabinet above my desk. I was getting comments about it all day. People loved it. LOL

Greetings,

The Dragonflies’Lair, has been my pride and joy for five years, however, after pondering over the last year of whether to continue, or close, it is my decision to close.

We are no longer a vibrant poetry thread, thus my conclusion to close. Poetry threads ebb and wane, this is the case for The Dragonflies’Lair.

Thank you, all for your support and contributions to The Lair. I wish for my dream to die a graceful death and it shall be so. This was not an easy decision to arrive at, but it is the correct decision.

I will be leaving FR with this last action of closing The Lair.

Thank You, I wish happiness for you all.

Soaring Feather

Good morning, Ms Feather!

 

Although you had informed me early this month of your intentions of closing the doors of the Dragonflies’Lair, I had hoped you would have changed your mind.

I guess not.

 

Thank you for all you have done, & may God bless you!

Your friend,TomKow6

Journey's End
 
  In western lands beneath the Sun
The flowers may rise in Spring,
The trees may bud, the waters run,
The merry finches sing.
Or there maybe 'tis cloudless night,
And swaying branches bear
The Elven-stars as jewels white
Amid their branching hair.

Though here at journey's end I lie
In darkness buried deep,
Beyond all towers strong and high,
Beyond all mountains steep,
Above all shadows rides the Sun
And Stars for ever dwell:
I will not say the Day is done,
Nor bid the Stars farewell.

JRR Tolkien
