Busy old fool, unruly Sun


BUSY old fool, unruly Sun,
Why dost thou thus,
Through windows, and through curtains, call on us ?
Must to thy motions lovers’ seasons run ?
Saucy pedantic wretch, go chide
Late school-boys and sour prentices,
Go tell court-huntsmen that the king will ride,
Call country ants to harvest offices ;
Love, all alike, no season knows nor clime,
Nor hours, days, months, which are the rags of time.


Thy beams so reverend, and strong
Why shouldst thou think ?
I could eclipse and cloud them with a wink,
But that I would not lose her sight so long.
If her eyes have not blinded thine,
Look, and to-morrow late tell me,
Whether both th’ Indias of spice and mine
Be where thou left’st them, or lie here with me.
Ask for those kings whom thou saw’st yesterday,
And thou shalt hear, “All here in one bed lay.”


She’s all states, and all princes I ;
Nothing else is ;
Princes do but play us ; compared to this,
All honour’s mimic, all wealth alchemy.
Thou, Sun, art half as happy as we,
In that the world’s contracted thus ;
Thine age asks ease, and since thy duties be
To warm the world, that’s done in warming us.
Shine here to us, and thou art everywhere ;
This bed thy center is, these walls thy sphere.

John Donne



April is National Poetry Month, though poetry has so much to give us that really, every month should be poetry month. My mother loved poetry and knew countless poems by heart. As someone who loved literature, she certainly made sure she passed that on to her children. All of us can quote entire poems at the drop of a hat – and we will. We all had to memorize one poem a week and it is interesting to see that my siblings did the same with their children. While Mom was a Shakespeare lover, I was a big fan of John Donne, W.B. Yeats and Langston Hughes – very divergent but powerfully emotive poets.

0429_009The dress from Lark is a work of art itself – poetry in motion. It’s actually two pieces, a top and skirt that coordinate. At Collabor88, you can find it in solids, watercolor florals and stripes. I am wearing one of the florals and hanging about my bedroom showing off the Argrace hair Suki – another bit of pixel poetry.

These shoes are from fri.day and are also at Collabor88. I forgot to count how many colors they come in but it’s more than rainbow’s worth.

The poses come with the Argrace Suki hair. You get 5 poses balls and a 5-pose hud, so you can chose how you prefer to work with the poses.

The jewelry is from Paper Couture. I just turned the earrings a bit to make it look like they dangle.



The Aria skin from Glam Affair is as delicate as a watercolor – an apt contribution to this month’s Collabor88
