October, 1582

The Julian calendar threw
Spring’s equinox path far askew 
But Gregory’s shift
Of ten days closed the rift
So Easter eggs roll now on cue

    This is another great one Duke and tells facts of history. I so love history. I used to think I was going to be an archaeologist ;} ,,,, I was looking at a picture of girl looking out to sea at a ship as I wrote She Waits"

    this is wonderful!! I was able to find where I left off. So I will try to see a bunch of these now. By the way, perfect meter on this one. I think it 's not difficult to do limerick meter, but I find very few poets here who "have it" and YOU have it!!!

    That's what Pope Gregory did for us back then. You have described everything well in this limerick.
