A Celebratory Sonnet: The ESS wordprESS exprESS

ESS Newsletter

2021, Vol. 1

On the occasion of the ESS Website launch.

The efficient demolition of traditional divisions
between SEES and WESS
by definition had envisioned the provisional transition
to a website edition for ESS.

Unto the scene came a team from academe
with a scheme and a laser-beam focus
on European themes to be seen on all machines
that have a screen and a digital locus.

Thus, a sticky WESS wiki and a megabyte SEES site
grew fond of each other and, yes,
––despite some falters––they vaulted to the altar,
then moved into the edifice of WordPress.

Oh yeah! So now we’re up for stirring up
the study of Europe… till it’s smooth as syrup.
