A Boat Beneath A Sunny Sky

Image

BOAT beneath a sunny sky,
Lingering onward dreamily
In an evening of July —
Image
Children three that nestle near,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Pleased a simple tale to hear —
Image
Long has paled that sunny sky:
Echoes fade and memories die:
Autumn frosts have slain July.
Still she haunts me, phantomwise,
Alice moving under skies
Never seen by waking eyes.
Children yet, the tale to hear,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Lovingly shall nestle near.
In a Wonderland they lie,
Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summers die:
Image
Ever drifting down the stream —
Lingering in the golden gleam —
Life, what is it but a dream?

I do like to be beside the seaside…

Sur la côte anglaise, même les lampadaires portent leur petite laine!Image

Allez, on va au moins tremper les pieds!

C’était au bord de la Mer du Nord un mois d’août.

Quoique … en Vendée, une semaine plus tôt, ce n’était guère mieux ….

The North Sea seen from Lincolnshire, the Atlantic Coast in France … same difference? Though lamp posts wearing woollens? Only in the UK!
