Re: TKD and canon

ja' Voragh:
>Some quotes about the heart {tIq} in Klingon tradition:

Don't forget the fragment of love poetry that was apparently in the script
for the TNG episode "Up the Long Ladder" but didn't make it to the screen:

  I hunt in darkness.
  The stars my guide.
  The memory of you sings in my blood.
  I seize the gift.
  Carry it to your bower.
  And lay at your feet the hearts of my enemies.

More than the heart, the blood seems to be considered a seat of emotion.
TKW page 17 gives us {bomDI' 'IwwIj qaqaw} for the third line of this
love poem.
