Saturday

Today, in Pennsylvania,
we have the kind of
perfect October day
that often arrives with
the High Holidays.
The trick of living here,
in the shadow of the great
lakes, is not to let the tilt
of the low and lazy sun,
onto your horizon too soon.
It is not easy, as we who have
lived so often through the
encasement of winter are not
unlike the little furry things that
rush about beneath the fading
flowers. We wish, as well, to fatten
our cheeks and store our seeds
safely in some stately oak.

Later, we will hear the shouts of
victory or defeat, from our enormous
football field bounce and echo
off the pine-treed ridge.
Perhaps, with time, I may
also hear the ancient sounds
of prayer join the cheers
there. For although, I seem
no longer fan nor Jew, I still
long to hear fall’s raspy voice
plead against all odds for a winter
late in arriving and short in its stay.

  2. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is not that great, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. WordPress Seo Plugin
