Solomon Kane’s Homecoming: Robert E Howard

Posted on: 18 November 2006

“We beat them back with broken blades, till crimsom ran the tide;

“Death thundered in the cannon smoke when Richard Grenville died.

“We should have blown her hull apart and sunk beneath the Main.

“The people saw upon his wrist the scars of the racks of Spain.

Where is Bess?” said Solomon Kane. “Woe that I caused her tears.”

“In the quiet churchyard by the sea she has slept these seven years.

“The sea-wind moaned at the window-pane, and Solomon bowed his head.

“Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, and the fairest fade,” he said.

Oh my goodness, there lies Bob??? I have tears in my eyes. Thank you for posting both the words and the pictures Ann.

He’ll never fade – neither Bob, Bobby nor Vincent – as long as we have breath and the media keep him coming. (Oooh, I’d like to keep him coming…)

Lovely Ann. 🙂
