A Poetic Interlude

Many moons ago, I read and loved
by James Elroy Flecker.

Unfortunately, Flecker was one 
of the many talented young men
sacrificed in The Great War.

But I loved his poem.

Later this week, I too am taking
the road to Samarkand.

Never underestimate the power of a good poem.

  1. I think a good poem can be the best of guidebooks

  2. Others words tempt us so.

  3. A poem can start many a journey

  4. It is such an evocative poem.
    And I envy you your trip.


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
