    the phrase “best blue velvet bedspread” trips off the tongue as deliciously as anything from Coleridge. (I think that the best example of language can be found in his “Kubla Khan”) I got chills from the phrase you used. Thank you!

    • Shawn Bird Says:

      Why thank you! I confess I spent a couple of hours working out that line. It’s nice to know someone appreciates it! 🙂

      Now I’ll have go re-read Kubla Khan. (I have just finished an interesting non-fiction book about how Genghis Khan’s daughters saved his empire, which wasn’t even vaguely poetic).
