etiennelefleur: I've been drawn back to the work of poet John Clare (1793-1864). He writes so beautifully, so powerfully, about the theft of our common land.
Here are some of his poems mourning the privatisation of our commons:
"The Tragedy of the Enclosures"

la_leere: this makes me wonder, although I have nothing like the background that would be needed to investigate it, whether there is an "enclosure poetry" tradition in Indian literature analogous to ppl like John Clare/other romantics at times in England

MondayStory: I think my favourite of all the books/stories is Tehanu. Adult Tenar is such a wonderful character, and it has that careworn, tough kindness and warmth to it - what Heaney (writing about John Clare) called extreme experience turned into something gentle - that’s catnip to me.

davidmcw: John Hume remembered. Here's my thoughts on the transformative power of the credit unions set up by John Hume in 1960. Cameos from The Undertones, SLF, micro banks & the act of defiance that is self-improvement. Hope you enjoy it. Hume was a colossus.

MoggMentum: Dave and Clare Edwards say they told police and have complained to watchdog.
On a completely unrelated note, David and Clare Edwards have consistently posted to social media over the last 5 years anti-Tory propaganda and anti-Brexit nonsense.
StephanieNorgat: So shocked about this. Reading poetry by D H Lawrence, Elizabeth Jennings, Norman MacCaig, Ruth Pitter, John Clare, Blake, Langston Hughes at 14-16 changed my life for the better. I would never have known their work without the exam curriculum.
GylesB1: Day 137 of poetry & jumpers. “Summer Morning” by the great nature poet John Clare - written 200 years ago so some of the words are unfamiliar now: sloomy means sleepily ... Part One is here in a jumper. Part Two follows without a jumper - but with a cat!
GylesB1: Day 137 continued - the second part of John Clare’s poem “Summer Morning” & I’ve taken off the jumper and put on the cat!
John_D_Clare: Statistical Q. trying to formulate something like an HMM, but state is constant, observations follow 1st or 2nd order Markov process but are temporally ragged: missing obs (I think) need to be smoothed/filtered. There a name for this? Anyone seen something similar?
PykusPiraticus: House or Window Flies
These little window dwellers, in cottages and halls, were always entertaining to me; after dancing in the window all day from sunrise to sunset they would sip of the tea, drink of the beer, and eat of the sugar, and be welcome all summer long. .
John_McGahon: Left Dingle at 9am, got the Ferry from Tarbet to Killimer and then drove up the entire Clare Coastline, through the Burren, and made it to Salthill just before high tide.
Ireland is magic!

RedTRaccoon: Nobody is talking about the death of John Neville.
It's barely making local news.
He said I can't breathe 29 times before dying.
Five former detention center officers and a nurse have been charged with involuntary manslaughter in Neville’s death.
SocialBeastie: Poetry is the Universe making sense of itself - 3: poetry understood in its historical context leads, unsurprisingly, to a more complete understanding of history. No-one exists in a vacuum. For example, read John Clare if you want to know about the Enclosure Acts.

greencatherine: Last thought of the day, can media stopping quoting John Key that there is a financial crisis ( not rocket science John) and can John stop advocating for invasion of the super rich, we don’t want them, we already have John and it’s not inspiring
ClareEcho: ‘He chose peace over war & dialogue over terrorism’ – John Hume remembered in Co Clare
NearbyWild: My camera does not do justice to the rich amber glow of St John’s Wort in the early morning. Amber is a traditional name given to this plant. This scene would surely have inspired John Constable to paint or John Clare to write a poem. Nature’s own tapestry!
John_D_Clare: Painter: seems like the gray we got for the garage is lighter than the [slate] gray you wanted. Want the house the same or intended color?

jessica32678922: And when I saw a stranger face
Where beauty held the claim,
I gave it like a secret grace
The being of thy name.
And all the charms of face or voice
Which I in others see
Are but the recollected choice
Of what I felt for thee.
girlsreallyrule: When Trump is asked how history will remember John Lewis, whose passing Trump has completely ignored, he responds with: "I don't know...I don't know John Lewis. He chose not to come to my inauguration."
It's always about him.

aoifegracemoore: This is what John Hume meant to the people of Derry, a city that put their arms around their son when he needed it most. “It’s no easy feat to raise people up when they’ve always had a boot on their back.” Rest easy John Hume.
