Lisa James liked a quote
She by H. Rider Haggard
“And now let us love and take that which is given us, and be happy; for in the grave there is no love and no warmth, nor any touching of the lips. Nothing perchance, or perchance but bitter memories of what might have been.”
H. Rider Haggard

Rose Ausländer
“We will meet again
in the lake
you as water
I as lotus blossom


You will carry me
I will drink you

We will belong to each other
in everyone’s sight

Even the stars
will be surprised
here are two beings
transformed back
into their dream
that chose them.”
Rose Ausländer

“We had been separated by time and distance and events so long, it was as if we had to get to know each other again, but if it was possible to fall in love with the same person twice, I did.”
