And blackberry-vines are creeping.

Mon Reve Familier [english]

Who does not every time quite change, nor yet quite dwell
The same,-and loves me well, and knows me as I am.

Two Old Houses

Away from mismatched buildings which seems to go on above the 7th heaven with perfect shape and structure yet with poorest enlightenment, there is a pretty yet petty little small town at the edge of the waters.
Away from cold hearts handling warm coffee sitting in crisp winter air, there is a town with warm hearts handling cold coffee in peaceful summer air.
A bit too far away from here in that pretty little town, there is a street with perfect enlightenment and finally in that street, there stands two houses proudly facing each other since 1987.
One house Is bold white and the other one is dull black with same structure, same kind of tulips in their garden which sway slightly in the same air as they nod each other greetings in the morning.

Hunting he loved, but love he laughed to scorn.

Then back to busy life again.

Virginity

My mother she had children five and four are dead and gone;

Elegy Xix. - Written In Spring, 1743

Again the merchant ploughs the tumid wave;
Another spring renews the soldier's toil,
And finds me vacant in the rural cave.

Around the soldier's bier.
