Welcome

“Let us read, and let us dance;
these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”

My Wife - R.L. Stevenson

I made this: Avid Reader at 6:44 pm
My Wife 
 
Trusty, dusky, vivid, true, 
With eyes of gold and bramble-dew, 
Steel-true and blade-straight, 
The great artificer 
Made my mate. 

Honour, anger, valour, fire; 
A love that life could never tire, 
Death quench or evil stir, 
The mighty master 
Gave to her. 

Teacher, tender, comrade, wife, 
A fellow-farer true through life, 
Heart-whole and soul-free 
The august father 
Gave to me.
