Soothing

Evening blush tonight As for the previous post, it felt to me as if someone was saying, “Lights out…Time for rest now, Baby.” And it was. A laugh out loud line of Shakespeare’s (cited in Selected Poems by Lord Byron): “I’d rather be a kitten, and cry, mew! Than one of these same meter ballad-mongers”…… Continue reading Soothing

Poet Byron with The Moon

Byron might like his book and the moon together… My reflective review apart from my moonlit window: These are poems to soak up and drink in, beautifully somber and purely light, with repeating motifs in the “Fragment” poems and “Stanzas For Music” poems, perhaps going along nicely with French Classical composer Gabriel Fauré’s piece “Romances…… Continue reading Poet Byron with The Moon

Looking into the Forest with a Teacup and Saucer, and Reading Lord Byron Beneath a Shady Pine Tree
