Wally,

Thanks so much for providing the link to the poem. I never read it before. I plead guilty, when you read the poem, it is clear that the context of the quote doesn't quite fit, but when you take the quote out of context it works pretty well... and I revised things a bit to tie it in even better. On the other hand, most famous quotes end up being used out of context, and are used to make points that nothing to do with the original intent, as the quote persists longer than the content. Thanks for keeping me honest!

The poem referred to is "I sing of Olaf, glad and big."

Read the poem and then decide if it goes well with the cartoon. I don't think it does.
