these are the timesdirty beloved


April, I never forget your birthday - it's just that it never occurred to me you'd be reading this. Then the other day I felt like I'd disappointed you by not saying anything, and I thought how can this be?

I still have that card you made.
Happy Birthday for all those times in between then and now.

Kalliope - en database indeholdende ældre dansk lyrik samt biografiske oplysninger om danske digtere
also - Kalliope indeholder også udenlandsk digtning.
Well done design and deceptively simple entryway [in Danish, the eng. lang. poets are in eng].
Whitman's listings illustrate the wide inclusion, and the little flags at the bottom right of every page bring up wonderful countries-ful of poets.
A great find and spectacularly useful resource.
