In Bohemia

An old friend, and one of my favourite books on my shelves.. 'In Bohemia' by James Clarence Harvey (1905) is a wonderful piece of nostalgia.

' What is Bohemia? 'Tis the mystic land,
Where kindred souls can grasp the friendly hand,
Where business cares, like flitting shadows pass
And disappear above the social glass,
Where doubts and fears, that all our pleasures mar,
Float off in clouds of smoke from your cigar.

It is a realm where every man is king
And friendship's smile a princely offering.
This is Bohemia, where your differences end
And life begins anew as friend to friend.

"I'd rather live in Bohemia than in any other land,"
So spake the soul of the poet, with the touch of a master hand..'
