When We Two Parted


In secret we met-
In silence I grieve,
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive
If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee?
With silence and tears.

(George Gordon Byron)


The Purple Guiding Star

Nestled at the corner of my neighbor’s fence is Clematis. The flowers are as big as the palm of your hand. Its color is deep purple with lighter shade sprouting from the center to each of its petals. This one is the Guiding Star Clematis, that looks amazingly like the star of the garden.

“The poet should have but one model, nature; but one guide, truth.”

Victor Hugo
