a little quatrain on thursday - for old times sake... *lol*
I 69 La grand montagne ronde de sept estades, Apre???s paix, guerre, faim, inondation, Roulera loing, abysmant grand contrades, Mesmes antigues, & grand fondation.
The great mountain, seven stadia round, after peace, war, famine, flooding. It will spread far, drowning great countries, even antiquities and their mighty foundations
Hmm... this would be the most unbalanced line-up of Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse that I have ever seen, I am sorry to say Michel my man... *lol* (Michel de Nostredame - of course!). Peace?!? War, Famine - fine... Flooding? Of course it can be devastating - the tsunami proved that... still... The classic Biblical line-up is, obviously, Death, War, Famine and Pestilence. Some exegets will say Deception, Death, War and Plague - putting in hunger as a plague of sorts. Conquest has also been hailed as a "Horseman" (which makes you realize that Dubya's entourage is not alone in absurd abstract conceptualizations - as their war on Terror seemed to indicate that they were... wrong!)
Simply put, this quatrain is so vague it could be about all sorts of cataclysms - the key is to find this mountain that is "seven stadia round"... And frankly, I am not in the mood to search for it right now... *lol*
