Who kept the Records in careful Order.
And what they said was respected
By all the Teachers of each Art.

O'Hartigan (10th century bard) writing on Tara in The Book of Ballymote. Translated by O'Hart (19th century).

Hi eds. Am I imaging it or have you added an asterisk at the beginning of each new sub-thread (a new poem on the main list in this case) to each new thread. If so that really helps sort a new sub-thread from other sub-threads and their comments - thanks.

Have been thinking of a couple of alphabetical indexes (by poem name and by poet title) but that's going to take a while. Also not sure how it would work - perhaps something like: Heaney, Seamus: A Dream of Solstice (Mar 21, 2005) and A Dream of Solstice: Heaney, Seamus (Mar 21, 2005) which would help take the reader directly to the poet and poem.
