And Vasily's mini-challenge this hour is to find a poem and post it. This is one of my favorites, from the appendix of Mark Z. Danielewski's amazing novel "House of Leaves."

You shall be my roots and
I will be your shade,
Though the sun burns my leaves.

You shall quench my thirst and
I will feed you fruit,
Though time takes my seed.

And when I'm lost and can tell nothing of this earth,
You will give me hope.

And my voice you will always hear.
And my hand you will always have.

For I will shelter you.
And I will comfort you.
And even when we are nothing left,
Not even in death,
I will remember you.
