I gazed – and gazed – but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought.
This has always been a special day for me.
Long before I ever dreamed of going to England.
Long before I ever saw the Lake District.
I met Professor Paul F Betz at Georgetown University.
He was a scholar of William Wordsworth.
Whose birthday is today.
I was originally planning to go across the pond today.
To celebrate Wordsworth’s birthday.
But I have decided to postpone my trip.
Because my friends are still submitting to Boris Bondage.
Let’s face it: Those Brits are total kinks!
I guess when you have a monarch.
Obedience is bred in the bone.
Americans are not really big on obedience.
That’s why there’s an America.
And Bostonians? Fageddaboutit!
Improper ones especially.
Every year that I was in England, I celebrated April 7.
Spring comes later in New England.
But it is coming.
The magnolias are magnificent.
I will do a whole blog soon just to showcase these lovelies.
But I did manage to find a few daffs. Just for Bill.
Happy Birthday, Bill!
And many more of them.
