    This is the plaque
    They stuck on the house where Chuck stayed.

    This is the daughter, pale and cold
    Who's named on the plaque
    They stuck on the house where Chuck stayed

    This is the doctor, stern and old
    Who treated the daughter, pale and cold
    Who's named on the plaque
    They stuck on the house where Chuck stayed

    This is the water, pure as gold
    as used by the doctor stern and old
    Who treated the daughter, pale and cold
    Who's named on the plaque
    They stuck on the house where Chuck stayed

    Hi. This is a nice example of an evoluting poem.
    All primordial meterial carried to the last strophe with a mutation at the beginning from plaque to poem.

      Thanks zampano - just a bit of fun, and I thought some of our friends here might like a plaque of Darwin to throw rocks at smile

        Darwin in Australia is named after him after he visited here. I must say I did not know about the plaque. smile
        Greetings Paraglider. smile

            Do you mean no rocks in Darwin? I lived there for 2 years, never saw any rocks.
            Lots of mosquitoes, great fishing, but a rock shortage for sure. smile

    Nice one !  I have been to the cemetery on the shore of Ascension Island in the South Atlantic where some of those who died on that voyage were buried on the way back. It brings home just how recently we started to get a hold on reality, the grave markers are the original carved wooden planks preserved by the dry atmosphere there.

    Greetings all - for a small country town, Malvern has had its share of luminaries in its past: William Langland, Edward Elgar, George Bernard Shaw, Charles Darwin. And more recently, Nigel Kennedy.

    Nice place. Makes me wonder what I'm doing in Doha!

      Hi Maita - I'm a sky-dweller now, living on the seventh floor, looking out over Muntazah Park. A nice space, at last smile

        Good, write about the place. Overlooking the park, that is nice. Does it get warm at that floor as oppose to ground floor?

          When it's 45C outside it gets warm everywhere! Fortunately I've got decent aircon smile

            That is hot, about 28C here today! Is that the hottest there? I forgot it is Middle East.

              Officially, it never gets above 49C, because at 50 outdoor work has to stop. But officials are happy to say that 53C is really 49, because work has to go ahead. (Slave labour, you know?)
