Under Water Planet ~~~

O Solitude! if I must with thee dwell ...
Let it not be among the jumbled heap of murky buildings:
Climb with me the steep,
-- Nature's observatory--whence the dell,
In flowery slopes, its river's crystal swell... may seem a span;
Let me thy vigils keep
'mongst boughs pavilion'd,
Where the deer's swift leap, s
tartles the wild bee__
from the foxglove bell.
__ A poetic: J.Keats 1795-1821.

Firecracker's Entourage & Queen

and say which grain will grow
and which will not,
speak then to me. __________ MacBeth, I:3

It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life,
that no man can sincerely try to help another...
without helping himself. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

Man Made Mode

Emerson thought: “To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children...
to leave the world a better place...
to know even one life has breathed easier
because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”

Still Life & Love's True


for Especial Editor: B.C.Aronson's ~ new author


" You have ravished me away__
By a Power I cannot resist... 
And yet I could resist, till I saw you! 
And even since I have seen you__
I endeavored often, to reason against...

The reasons of my Love! "

Montey's Delema [] [] []


"Poetry should surprise by a fine excess
__and not by singularity.
It should strike the reader as a wording
of his own highest thoughts...
and appear almost a remembrance."

"WPA" Sidewalk

~The WPA was created in May 1935 to replace earlier attempts to bring the Depression under control with the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA), the Public Works Administration (PWA), and the Civil Works Administration (CWA), the purpose of the Works Progress Administration was to provide jobs for the unemployed who were able to work. It was not a program for the aged, handicapped or other unemployables, all of whom would be helped by state and local governments, but rather it provided assistance to people who simply could not find a job. Sometimes called a “make work” program, the WPA eventually employed approximately one-third of the nation’s 10 million unemployed, paying them about $50.00 a month. ~(:-_))-kfh

Toiler's @ Meeting

*Thanks David: for the superb photo.
~Robert Browning's - Meeting At Night:

The grey sea and the long black land;
And the yellow half-moon large and low;
And the startled little waves that leap
In fiery ringlets from their sleep,
As I gain the cove with pushing prow,
And quench its speed I' the slushy sand.

Then a mile of warm sea-scented beach;
Three fields to cross till a farm appears;
A tap at the pane, the quick sharp scratch
And blue spurt of a lighted match,
And a voice less loud, through its joys and fears,
Than the two hearts beating__ each to each!

Deadly Delights:

"Ignorance is the curse of God,
 Knowledge the wing wherewith we fly...
To heaven."
Henry VI, Act iv, Sc.7

Sun Screen ***

[-=-]


" There is a time in every man's education...
When he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance;
That imitation is suicide;

 That he must take himself for better for worse,
 As his portion:
 That though the wide universeis full of good,
 No kernel of nourishing corn can come to him__
But through his toil, bestowed on that plot of ground,
Which is given to him... to till. "



--Ralph Waldo Emerson--

Alice in Wonderland: "I am late. I'm really late.., for a very important date?"

Emerson says:
"This time, like all times,
is a very good one__,
if we but know what to do with it?"

but one night every thousand years__,
how man would marvel and stare.” ~rwE~
