Then this project is dedicated to you. It consists of ten early Public Domain poems by some of the authors mention of whose most popular works is most likely to come in close proximity to the word "sorry" in the LV forums.

Included are: JRR Tolkien, Aldous Huxley, George Orwell, Dorothy L Sayers, CS Lewis, William Faulkner, Kahlil Gibran, DH Lawrence, Robert Graves and Ernest Hemingway.
