A fellow poet of mine, Allison Hedge Coke, is going on to be a SDPR show, Food for Thought at noon today. She has several books published and is an excellent poet. I have seen her poems on Poets Against the War, so I went there to find one that I really like: The Tanks Come Blasting.

In the process I found there is a "Poems of the Day" section and was pleased to find that the one I posted here and there on Feb 6 was selected for as a feature on Feb 8. I don't know if this of particular merit but as they say on the page,

As of February 2004, our team of volunteer editors has reviewed and posted more than 15,000 poems. We can't showcase every poem, but on this page you'll find a daily posting of poems or statements that have been suggested to us by poets and editors around the world.

In any case it is nice to have the recognition and I like the poem of the day concept because it is very hard to keep up with new additions unless some screening is done.

ere is something from the daily newletter, Early To Rise. It has some keepers today. Actually it is usually worth the time. I love the Thurber quote.

It's Good to Know: About the Number Nine

Today being the ninth day of the month, I thought I'd tell you something interesting about the number nine
that you might not know:

If you multiply any number by nine, the resulting digits add up to nine. For example, 4 x 9 = 36; 3 + 6 = 9.

It ALWAYS works. Try it.


Word to the Wise: Ennead

As long as we're talking about the number nine . . .

An "ennead" (EH-nee-ad) is a group of nine things --any nine things. Notable examples include the nine
principal gods of ancient Egypt (the "Great Ennead of Heliopolis") and the title given to six sets of nine
treatises by the third-century philosopher Plotinus.

This is something to make the subject of a poem, maybe "good book copy"
It beats the workshop activity that I saw once about using a cookbook recipe (literally) for some kind of "found" poetry. Oh well I guess a cheesy idea once in a while does not hurt anything.

The Federal Marriage Amendment

As long as we're going to do it, let's do it right

> > > I. Marriage in the United States shall consist of a union between
one man and one or more women. (Gen 29:17-28; II Sam 3:2-5.)
> > >
> > > II. Marriage shall not impede a man's right to take concubines
in addition to his wife or wives. (II Sam 5:13; I Kings 11:3; II Chron 11:21)
> > >
> > > III. A marriage shall be considered valid only if the wife is a
virgin. If the wife is not a virgin, she shall be executed. (Deut 22:13-21)
> > >
> > > IV. Marriage between a believer and a nonbeliever shall be
forbidden. (Gen 24:3; Num 25:1-9; Ezra 9:12; Neh 10:30)

constitution of any State, nor any state or federal law, shall be
construed to permit divorce. (Deut 22:19; Mark 10:9)

marry the widow. If he refuses to marry his brother's widow or
deliberately does not give her children, he shall pay a fine of one shoe and be
otherwise punished in a manner to be determined by law. (Gen. 38:6-10; Deut
