David | 4568 comments I can hardly keep desecrating Donne, Pound, and their ilk. So I started a new thread.

Cross-posted from "True North," a discussion of underground tunnels and such:

I feel chthonic
I feel chthonic
I feel chhtonic, laconic and cold
And I pity
Any mole that doesn't share my soul.

I feel moldy
I feel moldy
It's alarming how moldy I am
And so chthonic
I can hardly believe just how damp!

See the earthy man in that river there.
Who can that dank creature be?
Such a moldy face
Such an earthy shirt
Such a somber smile
I can hardly believe that it's me!

UPDATE: Corrected spelling to "chthonic."

A cross between Wind in the Willows and West Side Story?

David | 4568 comments Could be. There's a wonderful song, "Marry the Mole," by Carol Channing in an animated film not well known called "Thumbelina."

Is it a game? Who's on first? And who let the catterel out?


message 7: by Carol (new)

Carol | 10103 comments There a catalogue for all the catterel and a dogalogue for all the dogma.

Main Entry: chthon·ic

message 9: by Carol (new)

It means comes from the Greek. Ancient Greek χθών (khthōn), “‘ground’”


message 11: by Ken (new)

Ken | 17052 comments Mod
And it's pronounced like so (listen up!):


message 12: by Ken (new)

thr-oh.

The big end of > < points towards the larger number.


message 14: by Debbie, sardonic princess of cheerfulness (new)

Debbie (Sardonicprincessofcheerfulness) | 6379 comments Mod
5>3
4<19


message 15: by Debbie, sardonic princess of cheerfulness (new)

Debbie (Sardonicprincessofcheerfulness) | 6379 comments Mod
The world would stop spinning if they went the same way!!
Just remember that the less than sign (<) looks like a wonky capital L (for Less).....or that the bigger number goes at the bigger end. And 4>19 is just wrong!

You were about to stab NE.....

I got the point. Gab's words are always direct and incisive when she's agitated. I'm typically the bull with the eye.


message 18: by Carol (new)

Carol | 10103 comments Magnetic appeal,apple of your eye Miss W. Tell.
