      Sorry, forgot to mention that the poem is by William Blake (1757-1827, London). The image creator wasn’t listed.

        Blake was one of my favorites. Thanks for a bit of pleasant on our drippy, grey, 100% rain day. No wind from Nicholas, just rain. Maybe a total of 2 “ over the next three days. Raaaaiiiiinnnnnn…..

          His poetry I like…

          The Tyger
          William Blake – 1757-1827

          Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
          In the forests of the night,
          What immortal hand or eye
          Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

          In what distant deeps or skies
          Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
          On what wings dare he aspire?
          What the hand, dare sieze the fire?

          And what shoulder, & what art,
          Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
          And when thy heart began to beat,
          What dread hand? & what dread feet?

          What the hammer? what the chain?
          In what furnace was thy brain?
          What the anvil? what dread grasp
          Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

          When the stars threw down their spears,
          And water’d heaven with their tears,
          Did he smile his work to see?
          Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

          Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
          In the forests of the night,
          What immortal hand or eye
          Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

          His artworks are a tad too strange, though…

    Mornin’ Lucille, everyone. Sunny, humid, but sort of nice here. It is allll the way down to 77*. As soon as I cool off from our walk, I have to get changed to go to breakfast and I have a couple of errands to do before then. Still no movies on that we want to see so it is back to my apt to play cards. Pray for Larry Elder to win Gov in CA. Have a nice day.

      Easy answer. Democrats never do wrong, cannot commit treason, break laws, riot, rob, etc.

      If he had been a Republican he would be made an example of.

        Exactly! Let’s see if any military leader comes forward to defend Milley.

        I watched about a half hour of the hearing yesterday where Blinken testified. During that short time I heard him indicate that the military was in charge of closing Bagram. And, of course, “the military” means Milley. Frankly, I think Blinken may be right on this. And now that Milley’s calls reveal he’s favorable toward China, maybe he also told them he was going to close the base and it would be open for China’s use. Far-fetched, perhaps, but that’s what came to my mind.

      It certainly is treason. He should be drawn and quartered. And, I will be happy to watch. GRRRRRR.
