This is going to be my favourite blog this year I think, I do love Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
Here is a wonderful poem from thefabulous Ella Wheeler
"Poems of Cheer,"The book was printed in
1915 so thispoem could
have been written before
then. Maybe, just maybe it
was a new poem written on
a new years eve. Wow!
wouldn't that be
amazing."Here it is, do enjoy it.
Blue Hood is coming now!
And we watch from the
window while she goes
by. She has such a bonny,
brow. And a fearless look in
her long-lashed eye;
And a certain dignity
wedded to grace, Seems to envelope her
Every morning, in sun or
rain, She walks by the window
with sweet, grave air,
And never guesses behind
the pane, We two are watching and
fair; Loving watching her down
the street, Dear Little Blue Hood,
Somebody ties that hood
of blue Under the face so fair
to see, Somebody loves her,
besides we two, Somebody kisses her -
why can't we? Dear Little Blue Hood,
fresh and fair, Are you glad we love
you, or don't you
just right, in the exact place I wanted to put it.
Now I am going to have a cup of tea and a piece of
toast and go to my bed. See you all tomorrow.
Hugs and loves Diddily Dee Dot in Dreamland.
