"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

A Winter Sunset

The beach is just a five-minute walk from my home.

..Had we some mystic boat with pearly oar

And wizard pilot,

To guide us safely by the siren shore

And cloudy islet,

We might embark and reach that shining portal

Beyond which linger dreams and joys immortal..

 

From “Sea Sunset” by Lucy Maud Montgomery
