Rhodingeedaddee is my node blog. See my other blogs and recent posts.


[6-16-2009 Update Insert: Most of what is in this space is now moot. I found out what I was doing wrong and have reinstated Archives and Labels searches. They do work. However, in certain cases you may prefer Labels to Archives. Example: 1976 Today begins in November of 2006 and concludes in December of 2006, but there are other related posts in other months. Note: Labels only shows 20 posts at a time. There are 21 hubs, making 21 (which is for 1976 Today) an older hub.] ********************************* to my online poems and song lyrics using Archives. Use hubs for finding archival locations but do not link through them. Originally an AOL Journal, where the archive system was nothing like the system here, this blog was migrated from there to here in October of 2008. Today (Memorial/Veteran's Day, May 25, 2009) I discovered a glitch when trying to use a Blogger archive. Now, it may be template-related, but I am unable to return to S M or to the dashboard once I am in the Archives. Therefore, I've decided on this approach: a month-by-month post guide. The sw you see in the codes here stood for Salchert's Weblog when I began it in November of 2006. It later became Sprintedon Hollow. AOL provided what were called entry numbers, but they weren't consistent, and they didn't begin at the first cardinal number. That is why the numbers after "sw" came to be part of a post's code. ************** Here then is the month-by-month post guide: *2006* November: 00001 through 00046 - December: 00047 through 00056 -- *2007* January: 00057 through 00137 - February: 00138 through 00241 - March: 00242 through 00295 - April: 00296 through 00356 - May: 00357 through 00437 - June: 00438 through 00527 - July: 00528 though 00550 - August: 00551 through 00610 - September: 00611 through 00625 - October: 00626 through 00657 - November: 00658 through 00729 - December: 00730 through 00762 -- *2008* January: 00763 through 00791 - February: 00792 through 00826 - March: 00827 through 00849 - April: 00850 through 00872 - May: 00873 through 00907 - June: 00908 through 00931 - July: 00932 through 00955 - August: 00956 through 00993 - September 00994 through 01005 - October: 01006 through 01007 - November: 01008 through 01011 - December: 01012 through 01014 -- *2009* January: 01015 through 01021 - February: 01022 through 01028 - March: 01029 through 01033 - April: 01034 through 01036 - May: 01037 through 01044 - ******************************************************* 1976 Today: 2006/11 and 2006/12 -- Rooted Sky 2007: 2007/01/00063rsc -- Postures 2007: 2007/01/sw00137pc -- Sets: 2007/02/sw00215sgc -- Venturings: 2007/03/00216vc -- The Undulant Trees: 2007/03/00266utc -- This Day's Poem: 2007/03/00267tdpc -- Autobio: 2007/04/sw00316ac -- Fond du Lac: 2007/04/00339fdl -- Justan Tamarind: 2007/05/sw00366jtc -- Prayers in December: 2007/05/sw00393pindc -- June 2007: 2007/06/sw00440junec -- Seminary: 2007/07/sw00533semc -- Scatterings: 2008/08/00958sc ** Song Lyrics: 2008/02/sw00797slc ********** 2009-06-02: Have set S M to show 200 posts per page.

Justan Tamarind: Book I e12 Establishments of public speech: The House Of Ordinaries and The Royal House Of Princes. The nearest to the cliff And furthest north was visioned by the spouse Of Moiland's first known king, Crean, as if His name had to be preserved, though his years Were quickly grayed with fogs of myth Which, since the Tamarind line began, his peers Have known reveal untruth, yet keep. Four tiers, Nevertheless, acclaim his primacy-- His being first to cross the Norax Sea And rock the Moi-Rog Ocean with his ships, His being first to plant the chortled Tree And let the name of Moiland from his lips On this then barbarous soil, his being first, And therefore king, of all these heights and crypts; His being first to turn from what was cursed, To leave old Urop at its hardened worst, Confused beyond a thousand years, to start A new existence in a wilder part, But freer, of this earth where men increase, Or die from weakness in the living art. And on those tiers, growing shall never cease, For conifers and flowers, bushes And deciduous trees, each with its lease From the Maker on each year's time, pushes Then toward greenness above the varied mushes Of liverworts and mosses that have grown Through every space between the Elcon stone From which that monument was built: the same White stone whose absence left this cliff, long known To hunters from Leoma and to the game They stalk/ along the Eribon spur, beyond Its edge; where, after Crean came With six armed men who were kiddishly fond Of trampling foreign woods, the spring-formed pond, Bright Eribon's source, lay ribboned with blood. So Crean reigned with Di, from cloud to mud, And never knew what she would raise to him, And never knew what limestone wall would bud Near the end of that spur of dastard whim, At the top of which, as the tale goes, A band of seven stripped themselves, to swim In a just-discovered pond below the snows Of Nareb. Only Crean's blade arose. Brian A. J. Salchert
