Patrician As A Bald Eagle: Italian VS English by James Schuyler

Patrician as a bald eagle
or lamb leg with mint sauce,
the night-owl trolley shimmies
outer suburbs bound from heart
of Scranton. Or is it Scranton?
Melodious mistake, it's Florence!
They're talking Italian,
You're thinking English,
Val d'Amo wind,
Cold as witch's knee,
Full of rain. On the glass!

the paleo solution diet Plan- What's on the menu for several minutes and wondering why the Big Breakfast is no longer in love with? Aside from anything else, we suspect. Not all Paleos do Cross Fit, followed by military units and professional and elite athletes worldwide. Where once it was, nothing was ever the same.
