The Little Green Orchard

by Walter de La Mare

Some one is always sitting there,
In the little green orchard;
Even when the sun is high
In noon's unclouded sky,
And faintly droning goes
The bee from rose to rose,
Some one in shadow is sitting there
In the little green orchard.
Yes, when the twilight's falling softly
In the little green orchard;
When the grey dew distills
And every flower-cup fills;
When the last blackbird says,
'What - what!' and goes her way - ssh!
I have heard voices calling softly
In the little green orchard
Not that I am afraid of being there,
In the little green orchard;
Why, when the moon's been bright,
Shedding her lonesome light,
And moths like ghosties come,
And the horned snail leaves home:
I've sat there, whispering and listening there,
In the little green orchard.
Only it's strange to be feeling there,
In the little green orchard;
Whether you paint or draw,
Dig, hammer, chop or saw;
When you are most alone,
All but the silence gone...
Some one is watching and waiting there,
In the little green orchard.

The Friday 56: Children's Book of Music
(Book Meme at Freda's Voice)
"Hector Berlioz wrote the piece (Symphonie Fantastique) after seeing William Shakespeare's play Hamlet in 1827 and falling in love with the actress, Harriet Smithson."

Harriet Smithson

STAGE ACTRESS

Harriet Smithson made her first stage appearance at the Cron Street Theatre in Dublin and in 1817, went to London where she appeared at Drury Lane. However, it was as a leading lady in a Paris production of Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’ that she really came to prominence with the theatre-going public.

From Book Blogger Hops, the question is:


“What is your favorite type of candy?”
My answer is Baklava. Now I know it's not really a candy, but I'm allergic to chocolate. there are so many other flavors I can eat, like strawberry and banana, but being Greek, my all time favorite is baklava... just a little slice of heaven with honey, nuts and phyllo.

LadyD Books will be visiting these fine folks today. Hope your Friday goes well for you!
