Share Your World – Week #17

What is your most favorite smell/scent?


Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself?

 Long Hair

Do you plan out things usually or do you do them more spontaneous (for example if you are visiting a big city you don’t know?)

I’m a planner.

What is your favorite outdoor activity?

Gardening, Swimming, Walking, and playing with my grandchildren. I couldn’t pick just one. I used to would have said hiking before my knees went out on me.

Sonnet 98

Sonnet 98

From you have I been absent in the spring,
When proud-pied April dress’d in all his trim
Hath put a spirit of youth in every thing,
That heavy Saturn laugh’d and leap’d with him.
Yet nor the lays of birds nor the sweet smell
Of different flowers in odour and in hue
Could make me any summer’s story tell,
Or from their proud lap pluck them where they grew;
Nor did I wonder at the lily’s white,
Nor praise the deep vermilion in the rose;
They were but sweet, but figures of delight,
Drawn after you, you pattern of all those.
Yet seem’d it winter still, and, you away,
As with your shadow I with these did play.

— William Shakespeare from Shakespeare’s Sonnets

Over the Land is April

Over the Land is April

Over the land is April,
Over my heart a rose;
Over the high, brown mountain
The sound of singing goes.
Say, love, do you hear me,
Hear my sonnets ring?
Over the high, brown mountain,
Love, do you hear me sing?

By highway, love, and byway
The snows succeed the rose.
Over the high, brown mountain
The wind of winter blows.
Say, love, do you hear me,
Hear my sonnets ring?
Over the high, brown mountain
I sound the song of spring,
I throw the flowers of spring.
Do you hear the song of spring?
Hear you the songs of spring?

— Robert Louis Stevenson from The Complete Poetry of Robert Louis Stevenson 

T.S. Poetry

Ireland, Ireland

Ireland, Ireland

Down thy valleys, Ireland, Ireland, 
Down thy valleys green and sad, 
Still thy spirit wanders wailing, 
Wanders wailing, wanders mad.

Long ago that anguish took thee, 
Ireland, Ireland, green and fair,
Spoilers strong in darkness took thee,
Broke thy heart and left thee there. 

Down thy valleys, Ireland, Ireland,
Still thy spirit wanders mad;
All too late they love that wronged thee,
Ireland, Ireland, green and sad.

— Sir Henry Newbolt from Collected Poems 1897 – 1907

The Green Month

The Green Month

WHAT of all the colours shall I bring you for your fairing,
Fit to lay your fingers on, fine enough for you ?–
Yellow for the ripened rye, white for ladies’ wearing,
Red for briar-roses, or the skies’ own blue ?
Nay, for spring has touched the elm, spring has found
the willow,
Winds that call the swallow home sway the boughs
Green shall all my curtains be, green shall be my pillow,
Green I’ll wear within my hair, and green upon my heart.

Marjorie Lowry Christie Pickthall author of The Drift of Pinions
