For the blur photo challenge this week, here is a picture taken at granddaughter J’s ballet lesson – poetry in motion!
And now, not this ruby hat:
But this one!
“Here with a Loaf of Bread beneath the Bough,
A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse – and Thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness –
And Wilderness is Paradise enow.”
Has ever it struck you how
Much the Omar Khayyam ‘Thou’
Liked her songs the last in line,
After bread and verse and wine,
Paradise-sing to allow?
Probably she told him, ‘Look,’
As she beaned him with his book,
‘Take your wilderness and bread;
With your wine and rhymes as re(a)d!’ –
And herself then elsewhere took.
