Nice to have you back Fred and I do hope you don't follow in the footsteps of dear Isaac Nathan, who reportedly didn't care what he said or how he said it and as a result upset a lot of folks, totally unlike you of course (scouse git).
regards
Brian

Thanks HHH, the trip was very enjoyable, very successful and very hot (Philippines always is at this time of year).

I haven't upset anyone for quite a while now. I think I'm losing my touch...

Fred

The perfect English combo - Keats's words and Stanford's music. Er, but the title's in French!
The ballad itself consists of 12 quatrains of ABCB rhyme in iambic tetrameter form, except
for every last line, which is in iambic trimeter form. The music is in F minor.
