    1. Sometimes it is Blonde, sometimes it is. Just like anything else in life I suppose.

  4. LOVED this, Han! :) It reminds me of a quote from Robert Kennedy that I have always liked:
    "Some men see things as they are and say, ‘Why’? I dream of things that never were and say, ‘Why not’?"

    Thanks for sharing! Many hugs,

    <3 Katie

  5. Oh absolutely.

    I love the words of Yeats:

    "Had I but heavens' embroidered cloths,
    Enwrought with golden and silver light,
    The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
    Of night and light and the half-light,
    I would spread the cloths under your feet;
    But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
    I have spread my dreams under your feet;
    Tread softly, because you tread on my dreams.

    I am glad to hear you are a Dreamer!

    Hugs

    1. Ah, Yeats.

      Never give all the heart, for love
      Will hardly seem worth thinking of
      To passionate women if it seem
      Certain, and they never dream
      That it fades out from kiss to kiss;
      For everything that's lovely is
      But a brief, dreamy.
      Kind delight.

      O never give the heart outright,
      For they, for all smooth lips can say,
      Have given their hearts up to the play.

      And who could play it well enough
      If deaf and dumb and blind with love?
      He that made this knows all the cost,
      For he gave all his heart and lost.

      I love it, Ami. the last line of your poem is so strong. Be gentle with me for my feelings are raw. My body is bereft of skin, you see the veins and arteries. And yet I put it under your feet, be kind enough to to trample on it.

      I'm glad you shared Yeats with me,
      Han

    2. I just have to swing back around and tell you and Ami how beautiful these are to think about. I just read them to Rob and I told him how wonderful it would be to repeat some of those high school/college courses, that way back when, perhaps were not as appreciated as they would be now. You live life and it all becomes so special and one can appreciate it all so much more. Time to dig in and reread perhaps... if I can find the time!

    3. Yeats is one of my very favourite poets. I also love Dylan Thomas. Have you ever read Fern Hill? If not, you should. This is the first verse. It is simply gorgeous.

      "Now as I was young and easy under the apple boughs
      About the lilting house and happy as the grass was green,
      The night above the dingle starry,
      Time let me hail and climb
      Golden in the heydays of his eyes,
      And honoured among wagons I was prince of the apple towns
      And once below a time I lordly had the trees and leaves
      Trail with daisies and barley
      Down the rivers of the windfall light."

      It's about his boyhood on a farm in Wales. Han, and Katie too, you need to read it.

      Hugs
      Ami
