Quotations

Ambition

Kenton and Deborah, Michael and Rose,
These are fine children as all the world knows,
But into my arms in my dreams every night
Come Peter and Christopher, Faith and Delight.

Kenton is tropical, Rose is pure white,
Deborah shines like a star in the night;
Michael’s round eyes are as blue as the sea,
And nothing on earth could be dearer to me.

[Hata Bildir]
