the age
I used to call old . . .
winter solstice
A winter solstice poem after the vernal equinox? This was, of course, written a while back. I was waiting for it to appear at temps libre. Here's how it looks in French (translation by Serge Tome):
que j'ai l'habitude d'appeler vieux . . .
solstice d'hiver
This was in part motivated by the fact that the solstice falls a few days before my birthday, and the most recent one, as regular readers of this blog know, was number 76.

At heart is the easy part, Devika.

polona, I think I've said that a few times.

Merci, Monika. I'll add your translation to my file.

Well-mannered birds, tikkis.

And thanks, John, Magyar, and Gillena.

It's funny when you catch up with ages you used to only imagine. I'm a few years shy of 40, and I can't believe I remember drinking wine on my parents 40th birthdays, and imagining I'd be so different by the time I reached mine. Just shows what we know ;)
