Thank you, thank you Cynthia at Muse Swings for sharing this beautiful award with Blicky Kitty. This is a beautiful one to post. It was created by Lavinia Ladyslipper over at the Birdbath Chronicles, where you can find a treasure trove of beautiful imagery.
It was the perfect moment to log on and see it because we were tromping around Boston, crunching leaves and drinking Chianti in celebration our nine year anniversary.
Here's the little Rhode Island church where we got married. The artist totally sucks and she made the church crooked (idiot) but she was free. I think she used a bamboo pen and ink, which she probably stole from a baby panda knowing her.
To me, fair friend, you never can be old,
For as you were when first your eye I eyed,
Such seems your beauty still. Three winters cold
Have from the forests shook three summers' pride,
Three beauteous springs to yellow autumn turn'd
In process of the seasons have I seen,
Three April perfumes in three hot Junes burn'd,
Since first I saw you fresh, which yet are green.
