Dear fellow pubbers (Yhas),

How is everything today/ whenever you read this? I shouldn't be on the internet in the morning because it distracts me and then I get to work *late* though Lucilla doesn't seem to mind, seeing as she gets in by half past eight and just waits for me. It's so funny calling her 'Lucilla'. Hee hee. Clare's friend Lucilla... *sigh* I miss the last couple of weeks, again. I really need to put up an entry with a list of songs which we can play in the Greyhound... ;-) I think that's an inspired idea. WAIT. Let me go get music device...

ODE TO CLARE:

Phoenix birds are too cool. Here is the translation of the bit in latin, taken from A.D. Melville's translation:

"These creatures all derive their first beginnings
From others of their kind. But one alone,
A bird, renews and re-begets itself -
The Phoenix* of Assyria, which feeds
Not upon seeds or verdure but the oils
Of balsam and the tears of frankincense.
This bird, when five long centuries of life
Have passed, with claws and beak unsullied, builds
A nest high on a lofty swaying palm;
And lines the nest with cassia and spikenard
And golden myrrh and shreds of cinnamon,
And settles there at ease and, so embowered
In spicy perfumes, ends his life's long span.
Then from his father's body is reborn
A little Phoenix, so they say, to live
The same long years. When time has built his strength
With power to raise the weight, he lifts the nest -
The nest his cradle and his father's tomb -
As love and duty prompt, from that tall palm
And carries it across the sky to reach
The Sun's great city*, and before the doors
Of teh Sun's holy temple lays it down."

*Phoenix: famous from Herodotus (ii. 73) onwards and equally suitable for use by pagans and Christians as a type of ressurection and immortality.

*Sun's great city: the Egyptian Heliopolis.

ODE TO CLARE:

From Ovid: Book XV:

"Haec tamen ex aliis generis primordia ducunt,
una est, quae reparet seque ipsa reseminet, ales:
Assyrii phoenica vocant; non fruge neque herbis,
sed turis lacrimis et suco vivit amomi.
haec ubi quinque suae conplevit saecula vitae, [395]
ilicet in ramis tremulaeque cacumine palmae
unguibus et puro nidum sibi construit ore,
quo simul ac casias et nardi lenis aristas
quassaque cum fulva substravit cinnama murra,
se super inponit finitque in odoribus aevum. [400]
inde ferunt, totidem qui vivere debeat annos,
corpore de patrio parvum phoenica renasci;
cum dedit huic aetas vires, onerique ferendo est,
ponderibus nidi ramos levat arboris altae
fertque pius cunasque suas patriumque sepulcrum [405]
perque leves auras Hyperionis urbe potitus
ante fores sacras Hyperionis aede reponit."

See the only thing that is really annoying is that everyone can see everything that we write. That's frightening.
