Down South Sprang

Green__ green__ green__ green
Green is the light that pours through the leaves
That sprung from their slumbering autumn’s eves
That whispers delight into everything:


Like poetry, but don’t want to spend any green?  Then perhaps free poetry books are your thing!

    I follow the “green one”. I’m so glad to hear the green one is back. Alice

      “Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight,
      At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more,
      When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death,
      And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again.”–Lewis in The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. 🙂

        Lewis must have been a dervish mystic. And yes. We’ve all read these many times here. LOVE the series. Alice

          I don’t think he would give himself that title, haha. I think he preferred to call himself a “mere Christian”. 😉 Yeah, they are fantastic–do you happen to have a favorite? 🙂

            All from beginning to end.

              They do form such a cohesive series–I love them all. I think my favorite may be The Horse and His Boy simply because it was filled with so much adventure; I think I reread this one more than the others simply for that. However, the Voyage of the Dawn Treader is perhaps tied just because of all the beautiful imagery. Some parts made me almost cry they were just so wonderful. Now I’m going to have to go reread them again. 🙂

              My younger just handed me “over sea, under stone” to re-read. Another kid series that’s lovely. Though nothing beats Aslan.

              Hmm, I’ll have to look for that one! I can’t think of a series that comes close, but I don’t read all too many series 🙂

              Nothing like Aslan, of course. But a nice kids series.
