    Hey Lind, you sure know how to kill a girl's mood, don't you? : -) Your imagery is second to none. Life is sad as you say here, Lind, which is why it's important, in my view, to show it your middle finger and enjoy love while you've got it. Warmly, Gina. (Report) Reply

    What a terribly frigntening picture of life/death, inside/outside, summer/winter. I feel the chill of the falling leaves, and, having lost loved ones, I felt the albumn pages close around me. (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
