Best wishes to Matt

Postby Saturn » Thu Sep 23, 2004 9:59 pm

Is anyone there - I know it's Autumn now, but has everyone died or something?

Well I'm still here, but I can't think of any topics anyone would be interested in at the moment.

As Matt is leaving us (hopefully only temporarily) shortly, we regulars should all embarass him by singing "For he's a jolly good fellow" and wish him all success in his Student existence.

All the best Matt - Fill for yourself a "brimming bowl" and toast the mighty dead - Keats, Byron, Shelley, Shakespeare, Homer, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, and of course Ed the Duck.

I am dead, ashes upon the wind.
Sorry 'bout that.
Good bye.

XXXIX
Peace, peace! he is not dead, he doth not sleep—
He hath awakened from the dream of life—
‘Tis we, who lost in stormy visions, keep
With phantoms an unprofitable strife,
And in mad trance, strike with our spirit’s knife
Invulnerable nothings. —We decay
Like corpses in a charnel; fear and grief
Convulse us and consume us day by day,
And cold hopes swarm like worms within our living clay.
Percy Bysshe Shelley, Adonais.
