The Stolen Child

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on July 29, 2008 by Frizz

Where dips the rocky highland
of Sleuth Wood in the lake
There lies a leafy island
where flapping herons wake
The drowsy water rats;
there we’ve hid our faery vats
Full of berries
and of reddest stolen cherries

Come away, human child
to the water
Come away, human child
to the water and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand
for the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand

Where the wave of moonlight glosses
the dim gray sands with light
Far off by furthest Rosses
we foot it all the night
Weaving olden dances
mingling hands and mingling glances
Till the moon has taken flight;
to and fro we leap
and chase the frothy bubbles
while the world is full of troubles
And is anxious in its sleep

Come away, human child
to the water
Come away, human child
to the water and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand
for the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand

Where the wandering water gushes
from the hills above Glen-Car
In pools among the rushes
the scarce could bathe a star
We seek for slumbering trout
and whispering in their ears
We give them unquiet dreams;
leaning softly out
From ferns that drop their tears
over the young streams

Come away, human child
to the water
Come away, human child
to the water and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand
for the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand

Away with us he’s going
the solemn-eyed:
He’ll hear no more the lowing
of the calves on the warm hillside;
Or the kettle on the hob
sing peace into his breast
Or see the brown mice bob
around and around the oatmeal-chest

For he comes, the human child
to the water
He comes, the human child
to the water and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand
from a world more full of weeping than he can understand

WB Yeats (1865-1939)

Washing machines are heavy.

Just got done helping my Dad move a washing machine down a flight of stairs. I’m a such a wimp. I’m all sore and sweaty.

At least it’s done.

Coochy

I was reading That Guy’s Blog which I do on a pretty much daily basis and saw he posted the “Clown Car” picture that I recently posted and find absolutely hilarious. If you missed it Scroll down.

In his post he mentioned the word Coochy. Just typing the word makes me giggle. I don’t know why-it just does. But, I do hear words that make me laugh for no apparent reason. So….because I have not heard or used the word in years, reading the blog made me laugh. Like really hard. People will be hearing me say Coochy much much more. Cracking up each time I say it. Regardless if it’s in reference to a female “private” area or what one says when they stick their finger on a baby’s tummy and say it twice followed by Coo.

Just Googling the word will provide hours of entertainment.

She was elderly and in very poor health. But, man did she provide me hours of laughter. RIP.
