I hope you have seen in my gallery some buildings from Skopje 2014 project....good morning and have a nice week ahead Amelia
Guten Morgen, Karl. Vielen Dank für Ihren Besuch und Kommentar. Ich bin sehr glücklich, dass Sie diese kleine alte Kirche gefiel. Es ist das erste Mal, dass ich es ohne Gerüst herum gesehen, seit wir nach Norwegen kam.
This scene reminds me of a poem by Thomas Hardy.
"The house is bleak and cold
Built so new for me!
All the winds upon the wold
Search it through for me;
No screening trees abound,
And the curious eyes around
Keep on view for me."
"My Love, I am planting trees
As a screen for you
Both from winds, and eyes that tease
And peer in for you.
Only wait till they have grown,
No such bower will be known
As I mean for you."
"Then I will bear it, Love,
And will wait," she said.
- So, with years, there grew a grove.
"Skill how great!" she said.
"As you wished, Dear?"--"Yes, I see!
But--I'm dying; and for me
'Tis too late," she said.
The poem was written after the death of his his first wife, describes her feelings about their new house when they first moved in, and Hardy's response to her complaints.
A massive LIKE & YS
That is so beautiful Mark, and I can feel tears pricking behind my eyes. In fact, before I post a reply, I must go outside to compose myself.
There, I have come back inside, and read the poetry again, and am still very moved by it. Thank you so much. I think that is the most beautiful comment I have ever received.
This is a gorgeous shotLIKEall the best Felix.
