"There's nothing to match curling up with a good book

when there's a repair job to be done

around the house."

Joe Ryan



it's getting cold, warm ourselves with poems!!!

listen to these words coming from the 19th century...
Come buy our orchard fruits,
Come buy, come buy:
Apples and quinces,
Lemons and oranges,
Plump unpecked cherries
-Melons and raspberries,
Bloom-down-cheeked peaches,
Swart-headed mulberries,
Wild free-born cranberries,
Crab-apples, dewberries,
Pine-apples, blackberries,
Apricots, strawberries--
All ripe together
Come with me and meet Christina Rossetti our Edwardian sister...
"For there is no friend like a sister,
In calm or stormy weather,
To cheer one on the tedious way,
To fetch one if one goes astray,
To lift one if one totters down,
To strengthen whilst one stands."

"Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening" was my grandmother's favorite poem. I do like the Rossettis.
