Kia ora Feddabonn,
I think the real authority is perhaps having a little hiccup in Iceland at the moment.
Cheers,

A lil more gray, a lil more grime,a couple of tree skeletons, and it would look exactly like how I envisioned an Auden poem to look like. But then I've read only two of his poems and they were pretty bleak :)

Impressive bleak pic, reminds me of one of the 'Father Brown' stories--i forget the title--where this guy goes up and up the Gothic church or something.

Why is there a big blank space at the top page always? Is it your artistic idea or accidental?

@shuakshuali: honestly, i remember just this one poem myself! bleak yes, but always 'ironic points of light' eh?

@mesjay: thanks. well deliberate, dunno about artistic. many ways it could be interpreted i guess.
