Send not to see for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee.

From book by Ernie Hemingway

"Send not to know for whom the bell toos, it tolls for thee" was written by John Donne in the 17th century.

Ernest Hemingway used it in the title of his book "For Whom the Bell Tolls".

Sorry to be a smart ar*e, but I lost that argument myself many years ago.

Is the Lutine Bell still rung at Lloyds? Didn't Lloyds end up in the poo a couple of years ago?

The "Names" were "written in water" (a phrase I read somewhere the other day and rather liked).

Hey Hey Hey
Attn:- Barrie Youde.
I see the makings of more poets beginning to emerge here.
You Could have some competion emerging on that front, - but still a long way to go I suspect.
Never mind - it's a start.

No it is not, and that I suggest, is perhaps the greatest loss of all.

Now we are far less informed,
Now we too often don't know.

The consequences/Implications of that ? - Well you can judge for yourselves.

Ding, dong, bell,
Pussy’s in the well.
Who put her in?
Little Johnny Flynn.
Who pulled her out?
Little Tommy Stout.
What a naughty boy was that,
To try to drown poor pussy cat,
Who ne’er did him any harm,
But killed all the mice in the farmer's barn.[1]

I new that Hemingway was not the original writer, I should have said quoted by Hemingway in his book For Whom the Bell Tolls.

Three blind mice,
Three blind mice,
see how they run,
see how they run,
they all run after the farmers wife,
who cut off their tails with a carving knife,
three blind mice.

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet
Her clothes were all tattered and torn
It wasn't the spider that sat alongside her
it was little boy blue with his horn

Mary had a little lamb
She also had a bear
You always saw Mary's Lamb
But you never saw her Bare.

Good Grief it gets worse by the minute . Derek

Thats possible too,
or in the words of G&S,

Quote:-
When the foeman bares his steel,
Tarantara! tarantara!
We uncomfortable feel,
Tarantara!
And we find the wisest thing,
Tarantara! tarantara!
Is to slap our chests and sing,
Tarantara!
For when threatened with meutes,
Tarantara! tarantara!
And your heart is in your boots,
Tarantara!
There is nothing brings it round
Like the trumpet's martial sound,
Like the trumpet's martial sound
Tarantara! tarantara!,

Unquote.

For Whom The Bell Tolls John Donne

No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manner of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.
