Where Is My Proverb

where is my Proverb

where is my nurse


where is my Derby Day


where is my Eighteen Poems


where is my hermitage of bourbon

"Hermitage of bourbon;" brilliant!

Christopher Fernie
Dear Thomas,

This is like a blind tasting of a new vintage: do I get a hint of bluegrass Kentucky and a strong afterglow of Welsh daffodils?

Are we toasting DT, TD?

Thomas, you are a 'blue ribbon' poet, and I raise my 'jar' to you, boyo!
