acantha commented on the word samarkand
We are the Pilgrims, master; we shall goAlways a little further: it may be Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snowAcross that angry or that glimmering sea.White on a throne or guarded in a caveThere lives a prophet who can understandWhy men were born: but surely we are braveWho take the Golden Road to Samarkand.
acantha commented on the word abracadabrant
