Thanks for the Frost poem, Bill. I hadn't seen that one before, suprisingly. It seems rather appropriate. I always appreciate your interesting posts at my site.

Thanks, Anon, BJE, and Monika. Once you've read Issa, you often feel his presence at moments like this.

And you're welcome, Anon.

Thanks, John and Gillena. Yes, Anon, the very same. The gentleness and humor with which he wrote about flies, fleas, spiders, snails, etc., are contagious, even a couple of centuries later.
