#200!

How fitting that my 200th post should honor the first poet I read on my own as a small child (after having A Child's Garden of Verses read to me before I could read it myself.) Happy Birthday, Robert Louis Stevenson!

"This is the verse you grave for me:
'Here he lies where he longed to be;
Here is the sailor, home from the sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.'"

Congrats on your 200th post!

Sorry I missed this when it was first posted. For some reason my RSS reader didn't report it until tonight.

I read him when I was a kid too. I like treasure island.

I don't often venture beyond my chosen list of blogs, but I stumbled upon yours recently and liked it :).
Just thought you'd like to know.

Also, Happy New Year!!!
