Ne'er Ask The Hour by catch---22 Ne'er Ask The Hour by catch---22
Ne'er ask the hour -- what is it to us
How Time deals out his treasures?
The golden moments lent us thus
Are not his coin, but Pleasure's.
If counting them o'er could add to their blisses,
I'd number each glorious second:
But moments of joy are, like Lesbia's kisses,
Too quick and sweet to be reckon'd.
Then fill the cup -- what is it to us
How time his circle measures?
The fairy hours we call up thus
Obey no wand but Pleasure's...


~Thomas Moore

I would just love if that poem could have been read by you as I love hearing them while taking in the image. Anyway, I read him out aloud for you. A wonderful poem for a wonderful image....again. You do have a knack...

thank you very much, Twiggy :)

I have a rather clear light voice but when I recorded "Eternity" on my youTube channel ([link])...mind you that's just talking into a very elderly laptop, ,my voice is all husky. It is interesting to do that. I am going to do more just because i feel the words should be heard. The vids I made there are really amateur and without any technical knowledge.

I guess you do have an accent.

Thank you...I guess you saw all my trees:-))

What I'm drawn to is how the vibrant demanding sun dominates on the right amongst its horizontal striata of amber embers, while in the opposite is the softer, cooler, bluer ripple of clouds pointing a gentler way left. Both sides appear so equally important. I would choose, except were I really standing there I would know that in a very short while they would appear completely equal. But for a few glorious moments -- what gorgeous choices.
