Lament
by Dylan Thomas

When I was a windy boy and a bit
And the black spit of the chapel fold,
(Sighed the old ram rod, dying of women),
I tiptoed shy in the gooseberry wood,
The rude owl cried like a tell-tale tit,
I skipped in a blush as the big girls rolled
Nine-pin down on donkey's common,
And on seesaw sunday nights I wooed
Whoever I would with my wicked eyes,
The whole of the moon I could love and leave

Alone
by Edgar Allan Poe

Of a most stormy life- was drawn

When kites held such a colorful attraction, and exhilaration like no other!

Since then, I had never found another vocation, I loved nearly as much,
Like a starlit moon in pure midnight, glimmers steadily on lakes and such.

I had a collection of treasured kites, that were my pride and me gave joy,

Courage
by Robert William Service

Today I opened wide my eyes,
And stared with wonder and surprise,
To see beneath November skies
An apple blossom peer;
Upon a branch as bleak as night
It gleamed exultant on my sight,
A fairy beacon burning bright
Of hope and cheer.

'Alas! ' said I, 'poor foolish thing,

Vintage Blues

indigo evening
the lapis lazuli sea
lovely blue roses

sunshine bluebonnets

megastar asters

ribbiting frogs, pond
nights on the town midnight blue
