and on that theme....
'I dream of you, to wake: would that I might
Dream of you and not wake but slumber on;
Nor find with dreams the dear companion gone,
As, Summer ended, Summer birds take flight.
In happy dreams I hold you full in night.
I blush again who waking look so wan;
Brighter than sunniest day that ever shone,
In happy dreams your smile makes day of night.
Thus only in a dream we are at one,
Thus only in a dream we give and take
The faith that maketh rich who take or give;
If thus to sleep is sweeter than to wake,
To die were surely sweeter than to live,
Though there be nothing new beneath the sun.'
It's not really my new bed, rather a very well placed hammock I discovered
on my afternoon walk. I am an extremely fond of it though so will definitely
be re-visiting :) Furthermore I managed to electrocute myself on a fence
while looking for a short cut - turns out that I'm not a massive fan of electrocution
and also was mildly disappointed that my hair didn't stand on end.
what can I say, after 12 years this village still manages to surprise me...!
