An Englishman’s Prayer


Today I am sharing with you one of my most favourite poems: Lord, when I die, please let it be in Spring, ūüĆ∑ Let me see the swallows and hear a robin sing; ūüź¶ Help me to my window to see a butterfly ūü¶č And watch the dreamy spiral of a lark up in theContinue reading “An Englishman‚Äôs Prayer”

Ode‚ÄĒAutumn Thomas Hood (1799‚Äď1845)


I I SAW old Autumn in the misty morn Stand shadowless, like silence, listening To silence, for no lonely bird would sing Into his hollow ear from woods forlorn, Nor lowly hedge nor solitary thorn;‚ÄĒ ¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†5 Shaking his languid locks all dewy bright With tangled gossamer that fell by night, Pearling his coronet of goldenContinue reading “Ode‚ÄĒAutumn Thomas Hood (1799‚Äď1845)”

Blush of Spring poem


Blush of Spring by Dawn Crabb (my grandmother) ¬†¬†¬†¬† Faint light of day creeps over the hill Pale moon hides and all is still Bending blackboys bristle there Green spears flung to the scented air Sea of daisies sweeping high Rainbow riot from the sky Frogs are silent, birds on the wing Bushland is calling,Continue reading “Blush of Spring poem”

A Lady of Quality

The Captivated Mind – Beth Moore


  If you didn’t get the chance to watch this video, I thought that I would write a few things that Beth mentions, and I particularly loved this video as it hones in on the mind, and not just in general, but spiritually what can happen with the mind, and the amazing, interesting, and fascinatingContinue reading “The Captivated Mind – Beth Moore”

“Old English” poems


Most old english pieces of literature and manuscript origins, authorship and early history are quite unknown. I particularly liked and picked up an “old English poetry” book from Scarborough library that I am absolutely loving. Sometimes I feel like it is a bit more eloquent than I could ever be! But my interest in EnglishContinue reading ““Old English” poems”

A British Blogoholic at heart, Burberry bling, & places to visit for 2017


I wish I could say the girl behind the laptop/computer was an energetic, engaging, imperturbable, diligent, hard-at-work type that studies all day, all night to create the perfect piece of a review, account or feature. The striving sophisticated lady that I am determined¬†to establish is wanting to achieve and obtain more and more in lifeContinue reading “A British Blogoholic at heart, Burberry bling, & places to visit for 2017”

How to survive as a girl in the men’s world


There is a double standard, obviously. We have all either experienced it, or have seen it. There is a deep-set of cultural, psychological views that are manifest through this double standard‚Ķ Some of these attitudes persist, and if they persist in as open, and in many ways transformational society as ours is in the 21stContinue reading “How to survive as a girl in the men’s world”
