Here, I will not write further
Yielding to temptation
Our meaning never did differ
affecting my admiration

Yielding to temptation
Most fallow this field
Affecting my admiration
to a friend shall fellow yield

Most fallow this field
Oh noble starry mind
to friend shall fellow yield
My bookworm smiles in kind

Oh noble starry mind...
Our meaning never did differ
My bookworm smiles in kind,
Here, I will not write further.

from the plebe...
I haven't the skill for a sonnet
nor useful lines stored in my bonnet
I can't rhyme for crap
and I'm done with this pap
so a limerick's all I've got on it.

$50

Help Vera

Vera Nazarian of Norilana books is facing foreclosure due to a series of truly unfortunate events (a fradulent lawsuit, mother's illness, father's death and sub-prime mortgage.) We hope to raise $11,229.72 to help Vera save her house. Update: We have raised this money. Any additional monies raised will be spent per this post.

Please consider donating, spreading the word, and/or participating in the charity auction.

Thanks a lot!

Mods Rose (grayrose76), Deirdre (dsmoen) - treasurer, and Josh (Guppiecat) - website and auction maintenance

Thanks to Adam Israel for banner and website help!
