Richard in Manchester BS: Robert Lloyd poem 'The Law Student' (12) RE: BS: Robert Lloyd poem 'The Law Student' 03 Aug 06


Jude, that's amazing, thank you very much!

And what a verse:

O, for thy spirit, Mansfield! at thy name,
what bosom glows not with an active flame?
Alone from Jargon born to rescue law,
from precedent, grave hum and formal saw,
to strip chicanery of its vain pretence,
and marry Common Law to Common Sense

I'm no lover of poetry as a general rule, but I like that a lot.

How can I return the favour?
