FREE COMIC BOOK DAY POSTPONED

 

 

I should've told you this ages ago, but I kept forgetting. Free Comic Book Day is normally the first Saturday in May. It will not surprise anyone that it's been postponed. Until when is an open question - we'll let you know when we know.

 

CULTURE!

 

Another day another poem, this time from the Romantic school, although it's not a romance poem.

 

Ozymandias 

 

BY PERCY BYSSHE SHELLEY

 

I met a traveller from an antique land,

Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone

Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,

Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,

And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,

Tell that its sculptor well those passions read

Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,

The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;

And on the pedestal, these words appear:

My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;

Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay

Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare

The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

 

 

And that's it for today. See you tomorrow - until then, be kind to yourself, be kind to everyone else, and stay home if you possibly can.
