Himalayan Blue Poppy and John Keats

Himalayan Blue Poppy

Himalayan Blue Poppy

I find the blue of this Poppy quite remarkable and most certainly, ‘a thing of beauty.’

From Endymion  Book 1

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
Therefore, on every morrow, are we wreathing
A flowery band to bind us to the earth,
Spite of despondence, of the inhuman dearth
Of noble natures, of the gloomy days,
Of all the unhealthy and o’er-darkened ways
Made for our searching: yes, in spite of all,
Some shape of beauty moves away the pall
From our dark spirits.

Rain Water Collector, Penryn River and Blue Poppy

1   Walking along the road, close to the wall in Penryn this morning, I spotted a unique rain-water collector – not conventionally ‘beautiful’ but anything that pleases me and makes me smile makes it onto these pages!

Please read carefully and enjoy

2   It is a delight every Thursday to be able to sing in harmony with others in such a beautiful place. It truly lifts the spirits.
