Love-Knot


And still on a winter’s night, they say, when the wind is in the trees,
When the moon is a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas,
When the road is a gypsy’s ribbon looping the purple moor,
The highwayman comes riding—
Riding—riding—
The highwayman comes riding, up to the old inn-door.

Over the cobbles he clatters and clangs in the dark inn-yard,
He taps with his whip on the shutters, but all is locked and barred,
He whistles a tune to the window, and who should be waiting there
But the landlord’s black-eyed daughter—
Bess, the landlord’s daughter—
Plaiting a dark red love-knot into her long black hair.

-The Highwayman’ by Alfred Noyes

I've got a some news to share with all of you all. I'm going on a holiday this summer. My Dad is taking us (Mom and I) to Europe. We're going going on tour and we'll be covering places like, London,Paris,Germany,Switzerland and Netherlands. So,if anyone of you lives there,I just want to let you know that I'll be visiting your beautiful country! I'm really excited because this the first time that I'll be going to far way places like these and if I'm lucky,maybe, I'll even get to experience a little bit of snow for the first time. My flight is tonight and I'll be away for two weeks. Which means my blog will most probably be dead until I come back.


Please forgive me if I didn't mention about this earlier. Its just that there were many things going on and I wanted to make sure that this trip was really confirm before I said anything to anybody.


So..um,that's about it. I'll promise that when I get back I'll post pictures and I'll make sure I'll really post them this time 'round. I don't want to break my promise like last time.


Have a wonderful and blessed days ahead everyone! :-)
(I apologise again I didn't mention this earlier)

  3. Enjoy. But why London? You should have come to the north east of England and visited me here in Newcastle.

  4. You're going to have such a great time :) Europe is AWESOME....especially England, but I'm a bit biased :)

    I love the poem, if you like this kind of poem, I think Thomas Hardy would appeal to you.

  6. Sounds like a truly wonderful trip! Europe certainly is a beautiful continent, steeped in culture, art and history. I'm sure you'll have an amazing time, I hope you enjoy London, it's a great place (I guess I have to champion it, it being my capital city). Oh, and Paris is the most astounding place, it is without doubt the best city I have ever visited.
