Emotion recollected in tranquility

If you have been with me a little while you may recall that I moved to a rather palatial temporary home in Grenoble in February and that I knew I would have to give it up at the beginning of July.  That time has come and in discussion with the local fire brigade, I have conceded that chaining myself to the stunning ornate pillars in the drawing room and refusing to move will simply be undignified, probably messy and not at all couth.  A teeny bit reluctantly, therefore, in a few hours I will close the door on this lovely interlude and very soon I will share what happens next.  In the meantime though, and given that it is summer and collective thoughts turn to high days and holidays, I thought a little less taxing on you might be to run a series of photographs accompanying poems, prose or lyrics that never fail to snare my heart and noose my soul.  Those which effortlessly conjure emotions and tempt my teeny-tiny brain to shimmy into something resembling coherence.

The first offering is this, a picture, taken more than three years ago in the north of le Cantal in the village that was then home and to whence I will head later today before decamping to the south of le Cantal to check on our seemingly endless renovation of a tiny square house.

DSCF3760

It seemed then, as now, to evoke this beautiful poem by a favourite amongst of all favourite poets …

He Wishes For The Cloths of Heaven

HAD I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

William Butler Yeats

PS:  The title comes from Wordsworth’s brilliant definition of poetry that it is ‘the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility’

And now I simply must dash  … .toodlepip!

NB:  My internet access will be tenuous until the weekend so please forgive me if I am tardy in responding to your messages and in reading your own wondrous blog-offerings

  1. I love the Yeats poem – one I hadn’t come across before. Lovely photo too, and very redolent of Cantal which, as you know, I love almost as much as you! I look forward to hearing what your next port will be. Maybe it won’t be a million miles from the Auvergne…

    • I’m very pleased to have introduced a new poem to you and am happy you like the picture, because I do know you love the Cantal too 🙂 In fact that sort of wier thing no longer exists as they demolished it and put the river back to it’s natural state to allow the fish to travel upstream to spawn about a year ago. My next port will not be a million miles from Auvergne but that is all I can reveal today (being an international woman of mystery and all that 😉 )

        Awesome ! You’re the J.K. Rowling of restoration.. Causing an undue amount of anticipation for each installment of your magical transformations 😉

        It’s funny how certain aspects of any story are highlighted in the reader’s mind.. For me it’s the walls, which is my jump off into the story of the building, the townsfolk and the challenges of the project.. The impromptu peep show is a reflection of you and yours, in humor, outlook, love and passion for life..

        I wonder what parts are left highlighted in other reader’s minds as they follow your adventure.. You know well that my mind works a bit in the abstract.. I wonder how saner minds digest and sort your tales of home improvement ☺

        No wishing about it.. I believe your writing talent could weave an interesting tale of nails rusting, if you were inspired to write about it..
        That doesn’t mean millions will rush to book stores to grab the latest installment.. So much depends on trend and timing.. Your talent could bring in millions of fans, with the right theme, timing and marketing.. I love restoration and imagination, so I’m naturally a fan 😊

        But yes, it would be cool to see into the reader’s minds in the snippets they hold that trigger the fascination of the story line..

IOU an email, I think – am in England with mum but gradually getting back to whatever normal service is!!

        With so much going on in France and England recently and your own lives, I’m sure you’ve been quite occupied.. 💛
        As long as you enjoy what you write, I hope you always keep writing.. In my opinion, an artist’s fan following is a natural reflection looking back.. The work is great, regardless of the lack of mirrors available at the time..
        Ever notice that we (most people) are our own worst critics, while simultaneously our biggest fans ? We are pretty much first to be dissatisfied with our works but regard it well enough to show the world ! I find us humans, the weirdest creatures on earth.. 😄

        My daughter’s wedding dress on 7/7/17 had a hippie flair to it (only $17 so perfect!!) The floral arrangement I made of silk flowers ended up wrapped in cream burlap. She loved it! Her younger man and she first time weddings. Left almost at the altar the first time by scoundrel, lost money but saved her special family unit. Daniel told me quietly he plans to adopt her sweet Micah. 💞

    The photo of le Cantal is surreal. The river is a rippled stretch of gold and it brings me to say next that Yeats never fails to make me sigh. This particular poem is one of my favourites xx

  33. Beautiful poem–thanks. I don’t recall ever having read before a rhyming poem in which all of the rhymes were done by repeating the same word. Being geeky, I note that sometimes, but not always, he repeats the entire noun phrase: my dreams, your feet.

    • It’s wonderful isn’t it? geeky it may be but I had not specifically noticed that point though I can’t imagine how many times I have read the poem. I thank you – I feel even better acquainted with a verse I feel is an old friend now 😊

  35. I think you should chain yourself to the pillars in your ra-ra skirt! I will look forward to hearing what comes next. Be grateful you are not in Texas – hotter than hell no matter how nice the abode. 😎

    • Next time, Kerry (and surely there will be a next time that I live in a place with gracious pillars if I wish hard enough?), next time I implement your suggestion! I hope the heat is not melting you …. I don’t think I can possibly even imagine that sort of sizzle 😳

  37. That photograph is simply amazing, Osyth! The water looks like gold and the composition is wonderful! And that poem? You can´t beat Yeats, can you? He´s one of my favorite amongst favorites too. Whenever I feel in need of some beautiful and wild words, I pick up my volume of collected poems by him and so far he has never failed me 🙂
    Wish you beautiful weekend, mon ami! 🙂 xxxxxxx

  38. I hope you had a brilliant day in Liverpool and all went amazingly with enough tissues to keep eye makeup in tact? Have you found somewhere new to live yet Osyth?

    • I had a wonderful day …. really just perfect and I managed to keep my make-up intact which was a miracle of modern cosmetics! My mother is still talking about it and was SO proud. I do know what the next stage is but if I told you I’d have to kill you 😉 xx

      • Aww that’s brilliant Osyth and what a wonderful memory for you all to have shared with your mum! Thank goodness for waterproof mascara… Well I don’t fancy being ‘killed off’ just yet so you’d better keep your secret but whatever the next stage is I’m sure it will work out fabulously… xx

      • And I love to read your stories Osyth.. I look forward to it and I was always taught that ‘patience is a virtue’ so I’d better become a bit more ‘virtuous’.. it’ll do me good! xx
