| in search of undiscovered skies |
~ Henry Kendall
‘My soul is full of longing
for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean
sends a thrilling pulse through me.’
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Lo! I am come to autumn, When all the leaves are gold;
~ G.K. Chesterton
Lo! farewell to the autumn, winter now brings the cold;
~ Nina Joan
Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.
~ Fall, leaves, fall’ by Emily Brontë
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”
~The Ode from ‘For the Fallen’
100 Years of ANZAC
(Australia and New Zealand Army Corps)
“… the open sky sits upon our senses like a sapphire crown …”
~ John Keats
I saw the beauty go,
The beauty that, in a stream,
Flowed through the breadth of the land
Like the fenceless foot of a dream.
