Poem of the day
Songs Set To Music: 16. Set By Mr. Smith
by Matthew Prior
Accept, my Love, as true a heart
As ever lover gave;
'Tis free (it vows) from my art,
And proud to be your slave.
Then take it kindly, as 'twas meant,
And let the giver live,
Who with it would the world have sent
Read complete poem
Nurture your mind with great thoughts.

Because Champagne!: Greek Architecture
Not magnitude, not lavishness,
But Form - the Site;
Not innovating wilfulness,
But reverence for the Archetype.
Because Champagne!: Greek Masonry
Joints were none that mortar sealed:
Together, scarce with line revealed,
The blocks in symmetry congealed.
( Herman Melville)
