ஜ~§Meet Me in the Green Glen§~ஜ

I had a pretty decent weekend. Didn’t really do too much, I did however catch up on some sleep, and some TV. In addition to that, my boyfriend and I had the opportunity to video-conference for several hours yesterday. YAY. It’s unlikely he and I will be able to get together until after the holidays. Probably because we were able to spend so much time together yesterday … I had some crazy awesome dreams about him.

ஜ~§Poem Of The Day§~ஜ

Meet Me in the Green Glen
LOVE, meet me in the green glen,
Beside the tall elm-tree,
Where the sweetbriar smells so sweet agen;
There come with me.
Meet me in the green glen.
Meet me at the sunset
Down in the green glen,
Where we’ve often met
By hawthorn-tree and foxes’ den,
Meet me in the green glen.
Meet me in the green glen,
By sweetbriar bushes there;
Meet me by your own sen,
Where the wild thyme blossoms fair.
Meet me in the green glen.
Meet me by the sweetbriar,
By the mole-hill swelling there;
When the west glows like a fire
God’s crimson bed is there.
Meet me in the green glen.
John Clare
