And I dream of the days when work was scrappy, And rare in our pockets the mark of the mint, When we were angryand poor and happy, And proud of seeing our names in print. G(ilbert) K(eith) Chesterton
'Song of Defeat'.
Que ton vers soit la bonne aventure EŁ parse au vent crispe du matin Qui va fleurant la menthe et le thym. Et tout le reste est litte rature. May your verse be a glorious adventure Strewn by the crisp morning air Which helps the mint and the thyme grow. Everything else is mere literature.
