for 12/12/12 a sonnet to the Free Monoid

Sonnet to the Free Monoid

This simple truth, O wise, do not forget:
Though words and letters be your stock in trade
They, like all truths, in Wisdom wrought and made,
Obey the strict rules of an alphabet
Of choice letters, each one distinct and plain,
And made like us with hands both left and right,
Endowed with power, thoughts to put in flight,
By stringing them into a finite chain.

Oh the joys concealed in this verbal band!
All poems, essays, rich, trite, old or new,
A simple set linked trainwise, hand to hand,
Secret spell of all literary brew...

Lead us to Truth as mages came afar
To find the Infinite Word by a Star.

Something for Advent

Happy New (Liturgical) Year!

It's the first Sunday of Advent, and since people may be looking around for Something Good To Read - for themselves, or perhaps to give as a gift - you may be interested in hearing about the Advent special for the Saga.

The first five books of the series are "marked down" for Advent, provided you use this "Discount Code" when you order: YA6LKN5E

The titles included are these:
The Wreck of the PHOSPLOION
The Black Hole in the Basement
The Creatures That Live in the Walls
The Horrors in the Attic
The Tree of Virtues

Also, I suggest you get out your Bible and read the book of the prophet Isaias, who is the definitive Advent writer... for He is coming! Prepare the way of the Lord! Make straight His paths!
