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.”

(Anonymous in Nurse Lovechild’s Legacy)

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!)

Rhythm’s in green


“In Grün will ich mich kleiden,

In grüne Tränenweiden:
Mein Schatz hat’s Grün so gern.
Will suchen einen Zypressenhain,
Eine Heide von grünen Rosmarein:
Mein Schatz hat’s Grün so gern.”

(W. Müller in Die liebe Farbe)

Just the goal stands up!


“”Is football playing
Along the river-shore,
With lads to chase the leather,
Now I stand up no more?”

Ay, the ball is flying,
The lads play heart and soul;
The goal stands up, the keeper
Stands up to keep the goal. “

(A.E. Housman in A Shropshire lad, no. 27)
