The Snowdrop


Many, many welcomes,


February fair-maid!


Ever as of old time,


Solitary firstling,


Coming in the cold time,


Prophet of the gay time,


Prophet of the May time,


Prophet of the roses,


Many, many welcomes,


February fair-maid!


 
 
Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809 - 1882)

Hugh Williams moon boat to dreamland





The moon upon the ocean
is swept around in motion
but without ever knowing
the reason for its flowing
in motion on the ocean
the moon still keeps on moving
the waves still keep on waving
and I still keep on going

PostHeaderIcon Ladybird Mystery



Photo taken last sunday 06-10-2013

 


The Ladybird is a familiar sight in most gardens,
but its name is something of a puzzle.
The lady in ladybird is thought to refer to Mary,
the mother of Jesus,
so the literal translation is Our Lady's bird.
The religious folklore that is connected with
this insect's name, however,
spreads even further afield.
In France it is called bête à bon Dieu,
or the good God's animal;
in Germany, Marienkäfer or Mary's beetle;
in the Netherlands, lieveheersbeestje
or the dear Lord's beast;
in Spain, Mariquita or little Mary and vaca
de san Anton or cow of Saint Anthony;
in Russia, bozhya korovka or God's little cow;
and, finally, in Denmark, mariehone
or Mary's chicken.
So why, in such a wide range of countries
and languages should the ladybird have
this link with religion ?
Can any reader provide a clue ?

PostHeaderIcon Tongue-twister with a moral




Photo  taken  in August






I'd rather be a could-be
If I could not be an are.
For a could-be is a maybe
With a chance of touching par.
I'd rather be a has-been
Than a might-have-been, by far,
For a might-have-been has never been
But a has-been was an are !


(from The Friendship Book of Francis Gay, 1973)

PostHeaderIcon Dream of happiness




Kijkduin,  16-03-2013






Yesterday is but a dream

And tomorrow is only a vision,

But today well lived

Makes every yesterday a dream
of happiness

And every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day


From the Sanskrit
