Written in Canada, tune added in England, and sung in Sacramento before morning...

"Written in Canada, tune added in England, and sung in Sacramento before morning. Sometimes the internet is a wonderfully strange place."

carandol has hit the nail on the head there. In case anyone has missed it (which I doubt because far more people read papersky's LJ than read mine), desperance found an old Bible in his attic. A little flurry of research by people on his friends' list threw up a brief history of a man, hitherto unknown to any of us, who died young in WWI. The poignancy of his short life inspired papersky to write a poem, though as it was more of a song than a poetic sort of poem, carandol was inspired to write a tune and then recorded it.

And now, one wonders, how far will the song spread?

Your Score: The Raven

You scored 48% domestic, 42% gregarious, 46% trickster, and 55% intellect!

Wild, Solitary, Serious and Intellectual: you are the Raven! Raven is a strong symbol of both creation and destruction. Wisdom through intelligence, observation, and challenge. Raven is strongly tied to the spiritual world, living in a constant state of otherworldly awareness. Raven people tend to be very introspective and savor time spent ‘alone’.

This test categorized you based on four different axes of personality, which were then associated with a different animal. The four axes, as well as all possible results are explained below.

Wild/Domestic: This first axis categorizes you based on how much you are drawn to the outdoors, versus how much you are drawn to civilized situations. Domesticity has many shapes and forms, and varies from the joy of dolphins leaping next to a ship to the steadfast loyalty of a family dog.

Gregarious/Solitary: This axis measures how solitary you are. If you scored high, it means that you enjoy the company of other people, while a low score indicates that you prefer a more solitary lifestyle.

Trickster/Serious: This axis measures how well you line up with conventional trickster archetypes. People who fall into this archetype have a sense of humor and an excitable, highly chaotic streak. Scoring low doesn't mean that you don't have a sense of humor; it just means that you probably don't think dynamite is very funny.

Intellectual/Emotional: This last axis determines whether you are more emotional -- acting based on feelings and instinct, or rational and intellectual -- acting more on thought than on your gut feelings.
