This Blog Of Mine – An Ode To My Blog / With A Little Help from Shakespeare

“A Pale Green Mermaid Blog”

 Blogging From The Heart/Mind

 

This other eden, demi=paradise,

This precious stone set in a silver sea of words,

This Blessed Plot,

This earth,

This realm of ideas,

This blog of mine -this little piece of the world.

 

I highly recommend that if you have something to say blog it, we need every blogger we can get to join the fight to become one world.

 

Note: The Original follows,

  

  Shakespeare on England

 This royal throne of kings, this sceptered isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in a silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England,
This nurse, this teeming womb of royal kings,
Feared by their breed and famous by their birth

 

[Richard II, 2.1, 40-51]
