A Ramble in the Sky

Lights of Boston trail away,

wisps on winds born of steely birds

which skim the oceans with shadows stray

and bring with them one thousand words.

Soft chime the bells of sojourn's song,

Through leaves aflame in glorious hue,

Far be it from me to to wonder long

And wander on cosmic cue.

The curtain call of Autumn's end

In her one last elegant bow,'

Gestures on to something…

From-Ireland: My Website

I didn't name my website last night so now I'll tell you a little about it.

It is called from-ireland and I created it about 2001.  A net friend taught me a little about web page creation and I don't mean the kind of web pages that we find free on the internet now, I mean he taught me code and what the 'source code' of a web page looks like.  I had to work from the back forward meaning I created pages in code and then looked at what the end result would look like.  After a while, I…
