Home is the hunter

home from the hill

home is the hunter

home from the kill

(this may only be close)

Rex, this is the immortal "Requiem" by Robert Louis Stevenson.

Under the wide and starry sky,

Dig the grave and let me lie:

Glad did I live and gladly die,

And I lay me down with a will.

This be the verse you grave for me,

Here he lies where he long'd to be;

Home is the sailor, home from the sea,

And the hunter, home from the hill.

One of my favourites...one that I may take for personal use sometime in the far distant future, I hope.

The Walrus and the Carpenter by Lewis Carroll.

Especially-

'The time has come,' the Walrus said,

 'To talk of many things:

Of shoes -- and ships -- and sealing wax --

 Of cabbages -- and kings --

And why the sea is boiling hot --

 And whether pigs have wings.'

"Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing—absolute nothing—half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing," he went on dreamily: "messing—about—in—boats; messing—" - Ratty

You guys don't listen, it's....

"Leaning over the sink in my skid-marked boxers, jamming down Cluck U Atomics like a Lab chowing on a fresh pile of deer shiit."

I never dared be radical when young

For fear it would make me conservative when old.

"The spirit who bideth by himself

In the land of mist and snow,

He loved the bird that loved the man

Who shot him with his bow."

The other was a softer voice,

As soft as honey-dew:

Quoth he, "The man hath penance done,

And penance more will do."
