The Norman Boy

Sonnet 006: Then Let Not Winter’s Ragged Hand Deface

Far away from heart and eye and for ever far away

Sonnet 013: O, That You Were Your Self! But, Love, You Are

And your sweet semblance to some other give.

Used her, but was a ruthless watcher, and the band

William Cowper
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.

They ride above us in extreme delight;

William Shakespeare
The Trail Of Ninety-eight

Gold! We leapt from our benches. Gold! We sprang from our stools.

Fearless, unfound, unfitted, far from the night and the cold,
Heard we the clarion summons, followed the master-lure-Gold!

to be his home and bread. 'O take from me
the weight and waterfall ceaseless Time

Love And Friendship

Love is like the wild rose-briar,
Friendship like the holly-tree-
The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms
But which will bloom most constantly?

Vertical

Perhaps the purpose of leaves is to conceal
the verticality of trees which we notice in December

Nothing cares he while his heart is so cheery.

Across the waters of some unknown bay,
And find some island far from all the world;

It's a journey . . . that I propose . . . I am not the guide . . . nor technical assistant . . . I will be your fellow passenger . . .
