I do not venture into this page very often and in fact hardly ever.

Still I cannot help but wonder if any FReepers have any sort of insight to Matthew Arnold's work titled the “Dover Beach” and later spoofed by Anthony Hecht in his work “The Dover Bitch.”

One about war and separation, the other mocking life in general it seems to me.

In my very first English Course in College, I was introduced to these works. Now more than 30 years following, I reflect on them occasionally.

Point is, Christine O'Donnell out of Dover, Delaware is being maligned left and right.

No other poem comes to mind more easily than the first that I had to scrutinize so long ago.

Autumn Leaves

by Eve Merriam

Down
down
down
Red
yellow
brown
Autumn leaves tumble down,
Autumn leaves crumble down, Flaking and shaking,
Tumbledown leaves.

Skittery
Flittery
Rustle by
Hustle by
Crackle and crunch
In a snappety bunch.

Run and catch
Run and catch
Butterfly leaves
Sailboat leaves
Windstorm leaves.
Can you catch them?

Swoop,
Scoop,
Pile them up
In a stompy pile and
Jump
Jump
JUMP!




HAPPY AUTUMN!!
GOD BLESS AMERICA
