    That was a mistake. It could give someone the idea dactylion is something on the tip of the middle finger. It is simply the tip of the middle finger.

    Tith like a forgotten name
    Forgotten no more
    Uttered in such a way
    From the top of the tongue
    Such that it resembles
    The scent of a rose
    Wafting to the nose
    And pleaseth both in
    The remembering and
    In the hearing

    Besteth I can do beforeth breakfast and coffee

    Hiraeth (pronounced [hiraɪ̯θ]) is a Welsh word for which there is no direct English translation. ... It is a mix of longing, yearning, nostalgia, wistfulness, or an earnest desire for the Wales of the past.
