I crossed the line We laughed a bit and things seemed fine But I crossed it You set the pace during the race and I charged by And I suspect it changed that day for in effect you went away I shouldn’t whine the fault’s all mine Each bit of it

I get news of your latest poem but unfortunately all that appears in my email is the title and then a blank page.

Thanks, Stephen. I’m trying to figure out why this has been going on since mid-April, not showing the block that I format as verse, like I’ve been doing since I started the site. Until I can get this sorted out there are two workarounds to read the poem content. The first is that there is a part of the message that does go through (it is just a paragraph block, not a verse block) starting with “Published advertising free at” and it has a link to the blog site. The other is if you start a reply to the email it puts the whole message, poem included, in the body of the reply, and then you can delete the reply after reading rather than send in g it. Not great, but it works.
