    An Ode To A Fallen Man

    Found in an old rediscovered book - this classic poem to a long-forgotten man. (This is a lymeric my uncle taught me when I was about 12 - hope it doesn't offend)

    Thanks Amanda. As you see, I changed to a truly hand-writ script.

    A dramatic painting reminding me of a lyrics the great poet Giovanni Pascoli (he also got the Nobel in 1906) dedicated to his father's death, actually killed on the road and taken back home dead on his gig by the pulling young mare when the poet was just a kid. Hir murderer remained unknown.

    I'm just sorry to be unable to provide a decent translation in English, since, unfortunately, Italian is no more widely enough known or used, although, notwithstanding its unexisting promotion, it's slightly taking of again and learned, especially by many educated people and scholars ...

    my rather's on a poetic choice of flying objects to do me in, 'twould
    be a sausage, mushroom and green pepper pizza. Laughing and did
    anyone ever tell you that you have one heck of an artistic sense of
    humor? Love the literary presentation.

    My dear Caesar - There may indeed be something lost in the translation. This is a satirical Limerick, and I wasn't expecting any serious response. But, thanks for the story.
