September

Departing summer hath assumed
An aspect tenderly illumed,
The gentlest look of spring;
That calls from yonder leafy shade
Unfaded, yet prepared to fade,
A timely carolling.
- William Wordsworth, September

This fit the day perfectly it was just lovely here!

There is no Ground Zero Mosque, damn it!



Keith Olbermann Special Comment

PLEASE WATCH THIS!?

Religion is not the problem. Genuine religion is subverted by opportunists who use it as a weapon. Hunger can be used as a weapon, greed, nationalism, race, class etc. It is very naive to suggest religion is the problem. It is being made a scapegoat. Let's not forget Karl Marx was all about doing away with religion and the Russians tried it. So did the Chinese and the Cubans. When you take away peoples faith you take away their hope. I do not want to live in a world without hope. All the worlds great religions advocate peace and brotherhood. What you see with zealots and religious extremists has nothing to do with God. All of this fighting is about oil and empire not about religion. The worlds religions are being pitted against each other in the war for wealth and empire.

Fairness

by Joseph Wardy

An infant born deficient,
A child blinded by a freak accident,
Teenager killed in a car accident,
Where's the fairness?

Executives paid millions,
Many others only in pennies,
Millions starving and homeless,
Where's the fairness?

Its not about fairness of circumstances,
The question is the reaction,
That shows the fairness of character.

New Garden Feature


Tommy Makem-The Leatherwing Bat


'I' said the little leatherwing bat
'I'll tell you the reason that
The reason that I fly the night
Because I lost my heart's delight'

Chorus:
Howdy-dowdy, diddle-um-day
Howdy-dowdy, diddle-um-day
Howdy-dowdy, diddle-um-day
Hi lee-lee, little-I little-o

'I' said the robin as he flew
'When I was a young man, I chose too
If one wouldn't love me, the other one would
Don't you think my notion's good'

'I' said the red-bird sitting on a fence
'Once I loved a handsome wench
She got saucy and from me fled
Ever since, my head's been red'

'Hoot' said the owl with a head so white
'A lonesome day and a lonesome night
Thought I heard some pretty girl say
She'd court all night and sleep all day'

'No' said the turtle dove
'For that's no way for to gain his love
If you want to gain your heart's delight
Keep him awake both day and night'
