No sun – no moon!
No morn – no noon – no dawn –

no dusk – no proper time of day.
No warmth, no cheerfulness,

no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member –
No shade, no shine, no butterflies,

no bees,No fruits, no flowers,

no leaves, no birds! –


Thomas Hood (1799-1845)

  1. Tell me, are there any standing stones where you live or visible Cairns?  Is there a \’cairne of the glen\’ for instance? 
    And do you really live in this castle? 
    See that you were hippy!  Ha!  What sort?
    Lots of questions, just like a woman…….
