Cold be Hand and Heart and Bone

“Cold be hand and heart and bone
and cold be sleep under stone
never more to wake on stony bed
never, till the Sun fails and the Moon is dead
In the black wind the stars shall die
and still be gold here let them lie
till the Dark Lord lifts his hand
over dead sea and withered land.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

    • Ali, I’m happy to receive such a compliment!! It is a unique sight to move through the autumn landscapes. Everything is changed, and yet the same. Leaf fall intensifies and transparency increases. New spaces appear, everything gets brighter at the same time as the day gets shorter.
      In fact, it’s brilliant 😊🙌❤️
      All the best,

    • Oh! I know exactly what you mean. It becomes one of those trials where they are overcome by fatigue and the tree ends up swallowing them because they are leaning against the gnarled trunk.
      Happy Halloween, Curt !!! 🍂🍁👀🎃

    • Thank you, Robert. There is something special about drifting clouds and a full moon. It create an exquisite atmosphere, I think 🍁😵‍💫🍂🎃

    • Thank you very much, Peter. I think some churchyards are nice to visit. While others fuel my imagination. I once sought shelter in a churchyards, but it got so creepy that the thunder and lightning became a tiny little detail 👻👻👻😊😊
      I know many stories about churchyards 😨🎃
      Happy Halloween, Peter!!
