I will make you brooches and toys for your delight
Of bird-song at morning and star-shine at night.
I will make a palace fit for you and me,
Of green days in forests and blue days at sea.
I will make my kitchen, and you shall keep your room,
Where white flows the river and bright blows the broom,
And you shall wash your linen and keep your body white
In rainfall at morning and dewfall at night.
And this shall be for music when no one else is near,
The fine song for singing, the rare song to hear !
That only I remember, that only you admire,
Of the broad road that stretches and the roadside fire.
from "Songs of Travel" by Robert Louis Stevenson
The Castle Lady will keep the fire
(of love) burning for you !
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone !

    This is perfect for Valentine\’s Day, soft and sweet, filled with promises of love. It seems vaguely familiar, I had a book as a teenager with many of Robert Louis Stevenson\’s works. Have a happy Sunday and I\’ll see you again soon.

    Beautiful post for Valentine\’s. Sorry have not been back to visit. Work/life/stuff. However, dictionaries connect made me laugh because I look left and there they are, chemistry, art, the standard OED (hefty), etymology (LOVE! especially online etymology dictionary), Cree (a heritage language I cannot speak well), critical theory, chemistry, Black\’s Law Dictionary (oh some amazing entries there)… have not read all word to word but there is like a world within that gives entry. Hope life and castles go well 🙂
