To greet with joy the glorious morn,
Which angels welcomed long ago,
When our redeeming Lord was born,
To bring the light of Heaven below;
The Powers of Darkness to dispel,
And rescue Earth from Death and Hell.

Sir Isaac Newton said, “If I have seen further than others, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”

Tail to Tail


Crawl to cross;
creepy crude
critters crash ‘n
crunch on crib,
craving each other:

crane flies

All rights.

My friend Joy Acey adds to the research:
I went to Wiki and found this: Numerous other common names have been applied to the crane fly, many of them more or less regional, including mosquito hawk, mosquito eater (or skeeter eater), gallinipper, may fly (or mayfly)[2] gollywhopper and whapper.[2]
So they are the same thing.



Musk must rise from my throat
To signal to my infant Grandson:
Grandma’s arms: your cradle.

Musk must sing-waft
Through the rink:
Swirling with my roller dance.

Musk must warm
The candle flame
That lights your skin aglow.
