Love Is In Da Blog: Teaser Tuesday

Well today is Tuesday and Bee at Just Fooling Around With Bee said:Taken from A Daily Rhythm)

As for today’s topic for #LoIsInDaBl:

A teaser from a classic love story (with or without broken hearts)

Let’s go sophisticated and remember what we were told to read in school. Or if you are a lover of classic literature then by all means share what you are reading now. Of course, you do not need to follow this prompt nor the Teaser Tuesday meme. Just write, draw, photograph, sing, dance, paint, crochet….. you get the gist …. about LOVE!

Tuesday for me is  always  very  very  hard!  Teaser  Tuesday should  be  renamed  Tuesday  Torment  for me!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am sorry  I  did  not  warm to  the Brontes, Charlotte, Emily  or Anne

I managed  to  side  step  them at  school and  to  be honest  I  still  am.

Poor Elizabeth Gaskell   I also  gave  her  the  swerve

She  wrote  some  famous books  so I  know I  have  some  nerve!

Shakespeare sent  me to  sleep  though I agree his plots were good

His  sonnets  sometimes  took  my  eye though  not  as much  as  they  should!

Now give me Hans Anderson  and  his  fairy tales and  the  Brothers  Grimm

Their stories  really captured my  heart and  that’s where  Da Love comes in!

Then  Tolkien  and  and C.S. Lewis   helped my  imagination fly

I think the  classics are  not  for  me, you may  be  asking  why

Fairies, Elves, Vampires, Warewolves and  heroes are  what I desire

The  otherly  and  fantasy  have  always been what sets my  soul on  fire!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Once a King in Narnia, always a King in Narnia. But don’t go trying to use the same route twice. Indeed, don’t try to get there at all. It’ll happen when you’re not looking for it. And don’t talk too much about it even among yourselves. And don’t mention it to anyone else unless you find that they’ve had adventures of the same sort themselves. What’s that? How will you know? Oh, you’ll know all right. Odd things, they say-even their looks-will let the secret out. Keep your eyes open. Bless me, what do they teach them at these schools.”
-The Professor”
C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

 

“To the sea, to the sea! The white gulls are crying,
The wind is blowing, and the white foam is flying.
West, west away, the round sun is falling,
Grey ship, grey ship, do you hear them calling,
The voices of my people that have gone before me?
I will leave, I will leave the woods that bore me;
For our days are ending and our years failing.
I will pass the wide waters lonely sailing.
Long are the waves on the Last Shore falling,
Sweet are the voices in the Lost Isle calling,
In Eressea, in Elvenhome that no man can discover,
Where the leaves fall not: land of my people forever!”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

 

There I  think  I  just  winged  this one.   😉

    Love the poem. Excellent. Somewhere I wrote a sonnet as a paean to the famous poets who wrote sonnets before me. I wonder what I did with it.
