The one horse shay

I recently posted a reply containing a reference to the poem by Oliver Wendell Holmes "The Deacon's Masterpiece" - neither fact stated in my post because I couldn't think of them at the time. If you're curious, you can find it at:

I actually also didn't recall it being so dang long but that's selective memory for you.

My Thoughts

I love poetry! My first thought was could the modern update version be an Airstream and who writes poetry nowadays?

200 years ago which coincides with the Lewis & Clark expedition, man could only average 3 mph travel. Also, the mother of all earthquakes occured almost 200 years ago, not in California, but near the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers. I'm sure that knowledge influenced the "One Hoss-shay".
