An eliot is an epigram form I labelled in honour of George Eliot the English novelist/poet, inspired by an example in Chap 8 of her book Daniel Deronda

JOIE DE VIVRE
What tune does youth most play
when future's biding ? Today !
What wisdom does age convey
when time is passing ? Today !
What word does mpatience,us beset
When chemes delay? Yesterday!
What song do the old never forget
When in their cups they cry? Yesterday
WHAT'S IN A NAME
Some with words,swear so free
so lightly from their lip will trip JESUS!
He who in mind's eye I see
and with this word I worship JESUS !
