Every mind is a tent
Every heart is a sawdust ring
Where the circling race is spent.
dimitribarua: Listen to the yell of Leopold's ghost,
Burning in Hell for his hand-maimed host.
Hear how the demons chuckle and yell,
Cutting his hands off, down in Hell.
rebeccaeilering: I’ve had a reading theme this year. It’s Illinois. First read a book that is a collection of articles about Springfield IL. Now a collection of short vignettes about Illinois history. I think next I’m going to try to take in some stuff by Vachel Lindsay and Carl Sandburg.

VIgnatowitsch: All I can bring is one more song.
Though I have brought you a thousand
So it will be till my life is done.
