Wordless Wednesday erm 14?


This week i am including words and a photo that isn't mine.
This is Mick and Ruth, a gorgeous couple.
Its Mick's Funeral today and this is how Ruth wants people to remember him, a gorgeous hunk of stuff.These some snow drops i spotted on one of my hikes, i look at flowers and always think of Ruth and Mick now.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. ~From the internet.

  43. Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
    Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
    Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
    Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

    Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
    Scribbling on the sky the message He is Dead.
    Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
    Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

    He was my North, my South, my East and West,
    My working week and my Sunday rest,
    My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
    I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.

    The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,
    Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,
    Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods;
    For nothing now can ever come to any good.

    -- W.H. Auden
