Freddie Mercury
As quick as silver; 
As sleek as fox;
As grey as melancholy;
As green as the rookie;
As soft as granite;
As deep as a puddle;
As long as yearning;
As neat as transition;
As pretty as a drama;
As nifty as the tree stump;
As hungry as desire.

Freddie Mercury, British vocalist for rock band Queen, was born today in 1946.

Fritz Leiber, American author and poet, died on this day in 1992.
