If you have a spare million and some change, you can own the original contract that sold the Bambino from the Red Sox to the Yanks:

    SUMMER ends now; now, barbarous in beauty, the stooks arise
    Around; up above, what wind-walks! what lovely behaviour
    Of silk-sack clouds! has wilder, wilful-wavier
    Meal-drift moulded ever and melted across skies?
    I walk, I lift up, I lift up heart, eyes,
    Down all that glory in the heavens to glean our Saviour;
    And, éyes, heárt, what looks, what lips yet gave you a
    Rapturous love’s greeting of realer, of rounder replies?
    And the azurous hung hills are his world-wielding shoulder
    Majestic—as a stallion stalwart, very-violet-sweet!—
    These things, these things were here and but the beholder
    Wanting; which two when they once meet, The heart rears wings bold and bolder
    And hurls for him, O half hurls earth for him off under his feet.

    Gerard Manley Hopkins

    Would someone please provide David with a job!?!

  • If ever, Dave, you lived up to the rambler tag, wouldn’t it be now?

    hey now, i thought with a middle name like his that it might help us swallow a little autumn poetry… sheesh golly.

    Notice: every time a boy or girl says they don’t believe in waiter/substitute-teacher/poets one falls down somwhere and dies…
