it was amazing
bookshelves: love-love-love
Read in February, 2010

Travel, trouble, music, art,
A kiss, a frock, a rhyme--
I never said they feed my heart,
But still they pass my time. "


" 'Well, sir,' he said, genially. 'Come here, good fellow.'
"The dog ran to him, wriggling ecstatically. It covered his cold hand with joyous, though respectful kisses, then laid its warm, heavy head on his palm. 'You are beyond a doubt the greatest man in America,' it told him with its eyes."


"He'll live his days where the sunbeams start,
Nor could storm or wind uproot him.
My own dear love, he is all my heart--
And I wish somebody'd shoot him."
