― Charles Darwin, The Autobiography of Charles Darwin, 1809–82
I guess, after an introduction such as these words of Charles Darwin, it goes without saying that this Open Link provides us all with the rare opportunity to 'read some poetry...at least once a week' and what a pleasure it is for me to spend my Monday afternoons in very good company, even if I have nothing new to share, I take the time to read. My hope is that others who frequent this site feel the same way. Remember that our links do not expire in the Imaginary Garden, so please return tomorrow to reply or respond to comments left on your blog rather later than you were online. You may also link up a poem on Tuesday, if you wish. There are no parameters to this weekly meme, only the request that your post contain some element of poetry.
