Thank you, Lynnet. Looks good.

FYI, I'm not going to rush through this project, just take my time and record a poem or two as the mood strikes me. It will provide a nice break from the novel I'm about to launch. I may also decide to take on a fellow reader down the road, or open it up as a group project. Keeping it light and loose. :D

Thanks again.

Okay, Larry, here we go! Please, please let me know if I mispronounce any proper names, Latin phrases, or anything else. There were some unfamiliar words too, that I had to look up, and a couple of sentences that didn't quite make sense to me.

Next come the poems. 23 of them!
