Watching For Her Lover

This morning I posted

This afternoon I scanned

the next six pages of Charles Keeping’s illustrations to ‘The Highwayman’ by Alfred Noyes.

(Look away, Yvonne.)

This evening we dined on tender roast lamb; crisp roast potatoes and parsnips; crunchy carrots; firm Brussels sprouts, and meaty gravy, I finished the Douro while Jackie abstained.

I am an octogenarian enjoying rambling physically and photographing what I see, and rambling in my head as memories are triggered. I also ramble through a lifetime's photographs. In these later years much rambling is done in a car.

  1. Iโ€™m in a similar mind to Anne.
    Supper sounds delicious, Itโ€™s making me hungry I think I should get an early breakfast an early breakfast.

  2. Intensely vivid word-pics AND illustrations! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Ha. Now I need to read something else before trying to sleep. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    PS…I need to find and buy me some Brussels Sprouts. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I don’t know this poem, Derrick. These illustrations are frightening! By the way, are the crunchy carrots you dine on cooked or fresh from the fridge? I’ve been meaning to ask that. ๐Ÿ™‚
