The fair breeze blew...

If you look closely on this work I found inside the Grotto in Leeds Castle you will read Samuel Taylor Coleridge (died 74 years ago today) which says:

“The fair breeze blew, the white foam flew,
The furrow followed free;
We were the first that ever burst
Into that silent sea.”

First, my apologies for a bit of cut and paste commenting. I have been doing the rounds via Bloglines and looking at all the pictures from my favourite photo blogs, but haven’t been leaving comments. Generally, I try to comment as much as I can (I know how good it is for ‘morale’ to know that someone is out there appreciating them), but after the birth of my second son, I am a bit knackered to think up something witty and insightful on the hop. Thus the resort to Control+C and Control+P!

Cool shot and interesting verse! Though try saying the poem's second line three times quickly. The alliterative "f" wrestles the tongue. It's almost as difficult as saying rapidly "red leather yellow leather." Ciao!

That's an enchanting image! And poetic verse with it really stirs the imagination. A story could begin here...
