Poem for Today ~ To Helen

To Helen

Edgar Allen Poe

Helen, thy beauty is to me
    Like those Nicean barks of yore,
That gently, o'er a perfumed sea,
    The weary, way-worn wanderer bore
    To his own native shore.

On desperate seas long wont to roam,
    Thy hyacinth hair, thy classic face,
Thy Naiad airs have brought me home
    To the glory that was Greece.
And the grandeur that was Rome.

Lo! in yon brilliant window-niche
    How statue-like I see thee stand!
    The agate lamp within thy hand,
Ah! Psyche from the regions which
    Are Holy Land!

Feel Good Tip for Today ~ Iced Tea on a Hot Day



A quintessential refreshing drink on a hot day in south Texas is a large (and I mean Texas sized large) glass of iced tea. Close the laptop, put the smart phone on silent, pour yourself a large glass of cold iced tea. Take it outside, sit down, and let the world pass by for twenty minutes. Enjoy every savory moment. You’ll go back to whatever it was you were working on and being refreshed. Cheers. pardner!
