Watch out for the teeth of this pony

Watch out for the teeth of this pony

“I had a little pony,
His name was Dapple Grey:
I lent him to a lady
To ride a mile away,
She whipped him, she lashed him,
She rode him through the mire;
I’ll never lend my nag again
For any lady’s hire.”

A 3-course meal served for birds

“All islands to which birds wing their way, I wing my way myself.
Toward all,
I raise high the perpendicular hand—I make the signal,
To remain after me in sight forever,
For all the haunts and homes of men.”

(W. Whitman in Salut au Monde!)

A garden full of lines and colours

“The Lord God planted a garden
In the first white days of the world;
And placed there an angel warden,
In a garment of light unfurled.
So near to the peace of heaven,
The hawk might nest with the wren;
For there, in the cool of the even,
God walked with the first of men.”

(D.F. Gurney in God’s garden)
