The hand that signed the paper

The hand that signed the paper
The Hand That Signed The Paper

The hand that signed the paper felled a city;
Five sovereign fingers taxed the breath,
Doubled the globe of dead and halved a country;
These five kings did a king to death.

The mighty hand leads to a sloping shoulder,
The finger joints are cramped with chalk;
A goose's quill has put an end to murder
That put an end to talk.

The hand that signed the treaty bred a fever,
And famine grew, and locusts came;
Great is the hand that holds dominion over
Man by a scribbled name.


Dylan Thomas

Hi and thank you!
It feels odd to see you in another venue & wearing a different frock :-) (But nice too...)

Having put up new pix here, I've just changed my mind and decided that for the time being I am just going to mirror here what I put on flickr. In this period of transition it is just too much I think for me to do otherwise.... Where possible I will only keep tabs on people at flickr, but I will come here for people who have moved totally, or who are making different postings.... That is the plan, anyway ;-) My big foot is in flickr, my small toe is here....

How do you make bark look so nice?

I like your big foot in flickr/small toe here statement... Perhaps that is how I shall be for awhile as well....

Actually Methanie, the more I look at this pic (which I took some time last year), the more I think I must have fiddled with it somehow. I know the tree was wildly warped, but this is extreme. Maybe I did ummmm? Something. But I can't remember....
