I guess that's the thing about poems - you can just keep on refining.

Hi, would you please pass this note along to Homer? I invite him to come visit me on my new blog, Literary Lion of Lyon. He would probably recognize me from the blog’s title, but tell him Roary sent the invitation. Thanks.

Roary ^..^

I liked the first version better.I think the second one only works for people who read the first

thought the poem was in the shape of a pillar of wisdom! I like first one better - I think it communicates more effectively. But thats completely subjective - but then, can a literary opinion ever be objective?
