Hello People! Thank you for your contributions!
I was able to enjoy Mary's and Winston's today, the rest hopefully by tomorrow :D


So, "October", "Ulysses", "Circe" and "Credo" are PL OK and in the Magic Window.

Halloween is just around the corner--is that a big, black bird I see perched above the door? :shock:

I think it's a black cat in its Halloween costume :!:

Wikipedia says, "...Longfellow scholar Robert L. Gale referred to "A Psalm of Life" as "the most popular poem ever written in English"." I'm surprised it wasn't in the LV Catalog.
One more rendition of this poem can be found here

but yes it is surprising that it's not recorded as often as some of the other "most popular poems ever written in English"! :mrgreen:

Thank you for the PL. :thumbs: It looks like I need to improve my search technique. The only "Psalm of Life" I found when I looked was the parody here:
