Dear Perchester,
Thank you, dear saint, for your lovely ode. Though it took another Amy and endless ranting on my part to have me...uh...us...be the subject of one of your amazing poems, I am nonetheless flattered!
With admiration for your artistry,
Amy I

I feel so very honored to be one of the Amys included in said ode. How fabulous! Thanks for your persistance which made this possible. :-) How is your week going? What're you teaching currently?

Thank you. My family and I have cancelled going to the movies this evening to see if the Romantic Dandy posts again.

Amy ~ Hello my dear partner-in-poem! My week was hard, and since the NY State English Regents is this week, its about to get even harder! Once the exam week is over, I am teaching Gatsby to my juniors! My sophs are in the middle of Lord of the Flies. :)

Mr. Westchester ~ I, too, often find myself forgoing plans just to see if Percy will post again! ;)

A Missive Just Received...

"I'm up for a good feline poetry joust--among friends--
and my potential opponents are as worthy as ever could be hoped for!

Sir Percival, I assume that you are to set the terms?"

This from Miss Firebird aka Vivian. Tis enough for a duel, yet I cannot but suppose there must needs be further takers, given the magnanimity of the opportunity provided.

I shall announce, invite, and set terms on mine blogpostnext...

With Meet Victorian Earnestness,
Sir Percival B Silly

A Single Ode
"You're Only Nosely"

A single Ode to singularly Thee,
To speak not of base
Sensuality or places comely
Yet unspeakabe. Therefore
To thee I touch upon
Thine elbow and thine knee,
Thine bifurcated eyebrows only,
And perhaps thy nose, if lonely.

I just wanted you to know that I have grinned so much while reading Percy's last post- that my face hurts! :)
All my best to you and Firebird :)

What timeliness. I was just watching Jane on PBS and thinking about how much I like the actresses nose, as compared to my rather unique Armenian nose. ;) Merci beaucoup for my single ode, sir. And thanks to TG for requesting it!

Birdie - What fowl insinuation be this? I have been fastidiousy rejecting all submissions from ladies who accompany their poesy submissions with webcam urls.

Lady Jane - More then, the praise to thine nose. (Was there not some classic line or title here - "Drink to Me Only With Thine Nose?")

Mayden - Must you torment me so? Withholding the grace of thine fair poesy, for which still I long, and laughing at a distance?
