Thank you Kevin for completing the song - That is one stanza from it! This was exactly what you have wrote here that is the song from Dublin. I am glad I was dreaming of something special...Well this suppose to be the Moon Dreams, so watch out for the FULL Moon, you never know. It has a huge impact on people.

Etymology: Emphatic
Greek emphatikos, from emphainein
Date: 1635
Apparently the word 'Empathic' is not often use in every day conversation. It is an old word that has the same meaning to emphasize something.

Now you know and still that word can be used.
Thank you...Zuzanna

Kevin, I did hug a tree, I am not ashamed to do that in a day light. The trees are not only beautiful but hugable too. Imagine the world if there were no trees? There will be no balance in the Nature.

So when you get here I will take you to a park where there is a very unique tree that you can easily sit on each branch and have a lunch there. A low thick and spread branches - the kids usually occupy that tree as you know all kids love the climb on them. Like I said I will love my Trees forever. Even ENYA sings about them a beautiful song. One of my favorite. Thank you for reading and the great comment...Zuzanna

Clarissa, I am planing to go there in another year or so -to Luxor, which is the nicest place for tourist. Have a friends and they work there. I will take a tour by Camel on the Desert and to see the Pyramids. My love for this particular place is tremendous.People are very friendly there so I have heard. The place is always warm not like here 6 months of winter. Prices are reasonable. Five Pounds for a Dollar. Not bad. The only pricey will be the flight! My dreams are still alive to go there. The Culture it is over 6000 Thousand years old. The Oldest in this World. Now perhaps to feel better there I shall begin to learn Arabic language as it is slightly different from the Arabic from other places...History is my NUMBER ONE subject!!

Thank you for your great comment!

I didn't know there was a word 'empathic', until I read it in this poem. Your English is better than mine, Zuzanna.
'In Dublin's fair city, where the girls are so pretty, I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone... She wheels her wheelbarrow through streets broad and narrow, selling cockels and mussels, alive alive oh.'
What a great song. What a great poem - you never fail to impress me with your style, Zuzanna.

The Special Branch, lol.
I love trees, Zuzanna! I don't go as far as hugging them, but I would (if nobody was looking).
I read a story today about a self-destructing tree that has just been discovered... it's so big that it can be seen from outer-space! (Check the BBC science pages, you'll see it there.)

My tree tribute... I wrote this for a 'poet-tree' competition in 2007, and it was printed out and hung up on a tree in Derry, Ireland, for people to read as they passed by the tree:

They’re chopping down all the trees to make millions of sheets, millions of reams, for people like me to crumple and throw into wastepaper baskets.
I’ll start again.
They’re chopping down all the trees, so my fellow scribes and I can write endless litanies of heartfelt words about how they’re chopping down all the trees.

Hello Belinda

I really like how 'Donald' flows. (That sounds weird, doesn't it? A flowing Donald.)

I like what you've done with the rhyme in this poem. It challenges preconceived ideas about rhyming poetry, and that's a good thing - far too many poetry snobs in the world.

Paul's right. It is an oddly moving poem. There's a sadness to it - but it's a sadness that observes rather than seeking to engage the reader's sympathy/pity.

Great opening line too.

Good 'un.

Steve

Hello Cayn
Nice meeting you.

Thank you for the lovely update! You are lucky that you live in such close knit community so the performances can be done with no taking the plane for a flight. Here where I am it is almost impossible to fly to Toronto from Alberta where I live. It will take extreme amount of time as well as the flight ticket. The price equals the flight to Europe flying across Canada. Good luck with your poetry and the performances...Zuzanna

Hi daniel, Im the strange one here I guess. I dont buy that we wiggled out of the ocean as part fish and mutated along the way into humans.I used to believe in evolution, till I read a few books on it and found out how many bones they had to support the ape to man theory. I think they found some old bones from a profoundly retarded/handicaped person and made it all up. There is a difference in fact and theory.There is so much we dont know. Darwins theory is fine and a good conversation. AS you can tell I dont follow that theory. Nice poem!

"love is the virus that makes us all human"

I love this line- The feelings of being loved it has a healing power. Emotionally depleted from love people tend to suffer emotional problems, they are looking to escape that drinking or doing other inappropriate things to their health like drugs ..etc...Thank you...Zuzanna

Sir John was far too polite to call anybody a prat, let alone a royal, but he could be pretty bitchy when he liked. I think he was a great poet although I know that plenty of people are quite derisive about him.

My grandaughter has a rocking horse just like this and it is lovely. As they are made from relatively fast growing softwood, there should not be any problem about wooden rocking horse production being entirely sustainable.

The poem is really about a trade union leader with whom I had particular problems. It seemed to me that he had all the thinking capabilities of the rocking horse and made just as much progress, but he lacked the beauty and the usefulness of a childs exquisitely manufactured toy.

'trot' is a rather obscure pun unless you are in on it. Horses trot of course, but rocking horses don't. This Trot is really a capital letter version meaning Trotskyist. For those who may not know, Trotsky was an advocate of permanent revolution. Far to the left of Lenin and Stalin, he was briefly the Commissar for War in revolutionary Russia before fleeing the country and later being murdered with an ice pick on the instructions of Stalin. In my youth I was a Trotskyist, but I grew out of it. Quite a lot of our leading trade unionists are still Trotskyists.

Again I'm afraid, the explanation is longer than the poem. My poems are actually seldom about what they may seem, but then that is the joy of poetry to me. You can say so many things in so few words and even if nobody, but you knows what you are saying, it can still give pleasure.

Thanks Clarissa & Zuzanna

The poem refers to St paul's cathedral in London designed by Sir Christopher Wren. The Charlie is Prince Charles, son of Queen Elizabeth and Prince of Wales. He is fond of expressing opinions on lots of things that he knows nothing about. I regard him as a complete prat and it irritates me because, as a member of the royal family, he can get media coverage for any stupid thing he has to say, but because he does not have any responsibilities and he is not elected, he is not accountable to anybody and he cannot be removed from his position of influence.

The reason that I posted this poem now is that a regulatory body has recently been established for so called 'alternative' or 'complementary' medicine after lobbying by Prat Charles. In fact the poem was written long ago and refers to his comments on modern architecture. He described a modern building as a 'carbuncle' and the strong implication was that only much older styles of building had any merit. The truth is that only the good things among the old stuff have survived and the rubbish has gone. The same will happen with more modern buildings, but Charlie is too thick to work that out.

The Prince of Wales has a personal crest of three feathers with the motto of ich dien (I serve). In my opinion he only serves himself and does so largely at the expense of me and other taxpayers. I was sarcastically suggesting that he sees himself as another Christopher Wren although he has none of the knowledge to design a building at all, let alone St. Paul's cathedral.

'Ghastly' is a word that he seems particularly to like and when it is said in his peculiar, strangled upper class English accent it really sticks in my mind.

Sorry the explanation is longer than the poem.
