Pony Party, Sleeping In

Summer vacation, day 1

try to keep it down, im sleeping in 😉

I Fellowed Sleep by Dylan Thomas

I fellowed sleep who kissed me in the brain,

Let fall the tear of time; the sleeper’s eye,

Shifting to light, turned on me like a moon.

So, planning-heeled, I flew along my man

And dropped on dreaming and the upward sky.

I fled the earth and, naked, climbed the weather,

Reaching a second ground far from the stars;

And there we wept I and a ghostly other,

My mothers-eyed, upon the tops of trees;

I fled that ground as lightly as a feather.

‘My fathers’ globe knocks on its nave and sings.’

‘This that we tread was, too, your father’s land.’

‘But this we tread bears the angelic gangs

Sweet are their fathered faces in their wings.’

‘These are but dreaming men. Breathe, and they fade.’

Faded my elbow ghost, the mothers-eyed,

As, blowing on the angels, I was lost

On that cloud coast to each grave-grabbing shade;

I blew the dreaming fellows to their bed

Where still they sleep unknowing of their ghost.

Then all the matter of the living air

Raised up a voice, and, climbing on the words,

I spelt my vision with a hand and hair,

How light the sleeping on this soily star,

How deep the waking in the worlded clouds.

There grows the hours’ ladder to the sun,

Each rung a love or losing to the last,

The inches monkeyed by the blood of man.

And old, mad man still climbing in his ghost,

My fathers’ ghost is climbing in the rain.

  1. would be great, but the wind has been howling all night out here.  It disturbed everyone’s sleep which resulted in general grumpiness this morning.  Couldn’t sleep, got no rest and it doesn’t look to do anything but “get up” even more as the day heats up.  Between record breaking temperatures and the wind the effect is dessicating.  Call the waambulence now!

  2. i checked the championship picks thread, so if you posted your pick elsewhere, hit me over the head…

    but the wings won the cup in game 6 last night….so our final ‘dharmafan’ standings are:

    73v 11/15

    fort 10/15

    nightowl 9/15

    ucc 8/15

    brobin and landofthe free also picked the wings, and lotf picked them in 6.

    and after watching the cup ceremony with mostly empty stands, im not feeling one bit guilty about my spiteful pick in 6 so the wings wouldnt win at home.  not one bit…. 😉
