    The Beautiful Changes
    1947


    One wading a Fall meadow finds on all sides
    The Queen Anne's Lace lying like lilies
    On water; it glides
    So from the walker, it turns
    Dry grass to a lake, as the slightest shade ofyou
    Valleys my mind in fabulous blue Lucernes.
    The beautiful changes as a forest is changed
    By a chameleon's tuning his skin to it;
    As a mantis, arranged
    On a green leaf, grows
    Into it, makes the leaf leafier, and proves
    Any greenness is deeper than anyone knows.
    Your hands hold roses always in a way thatsays
    They are not only yours; the beautiful changes
    In such kind ways,
    Wishing ever to sunder
    Things and things' selves for a second finding,to lose
    For a moment all that it touches back to wonder.
    -Richard Wilbur

    so, what would you say are the major changes, aside from this infernal new format (no, no, don't get me wrong- i love it. i just hate, ya know what i mean? ). what major change has occured in the tpf world, both here in the ether and out there in the real world? Say, since late november of last year?

    Have you gone to your user CP yet to change those settings? I think Mark was telling you in another thread....you'll like it better when you can see all the old smilies. :wink:

    mmmmm, changes...? Here? It's always changing, babe....the ebb and flow of the tide of new users, former users, lost loves, new loves, and cheap P&S cameras. :lol:

    Stick around, why dontcha and see for yourself? :hug:: No one has recited such lovely poetry during your absence, I can tell you that. :D

    I agree with Terri, your poetry has been missed very much.
