sisters & sparrows

Poetry. Photography. Life.

We are having a new oven installed which is exciting because the other one was broken but now we can COOK A TURKEY for Christmas day!  My mum is jumping with glee!

{from lucky number 13}

Gaudete, Gaudete!
Christus et natus
Ex maria virgine,
Rejoice, Rejoice!
Christ is born
Of the virgin Mary,
Tempus ad est gratiae,
Hoc quod optabamus;
Carmina laetitiae,
Devote redamus.
It is now the time of grace
That we have desired;
Let us sing songs of joy,
Let us give devotion.
Deus homo factus est,
Natura mirante;
Mundus renovatus est
A Christo regnante.
God was made man,
And nature marvels;
The world was renewed
By Christ who is King.
Ezechiellis porta
Clausa pertransitur;
Unde lux est orta
Salus invenitur.
The closed gate of Ezechiel
Has been passed through;
From where the light rises
Salvation is found.
Ergo nostra cantio,
Psallat iam in lustro;
Benedicat Domino:
Salus Regi nostro.
Therefore let our assembly now sing,
Sing the Psalms to purify us;
Let it praise the Lord:
Greetings to our King.

“The green leaf that will outlast the winter”


Louis Zukofsky

The green leaf that will outlast the winter

because sheltered in the open:

the wall, traverse, and diagonal ribs

of the privet that pocket air

around the leaf inside them

and cover but with walls of wind:

it happens wind colors like glass shelter,

as the light’s aire from a vault

which has a knob of sun.



{Russian Folktale, Part 1}

Also, who knew Toast has a blog?  New favourite for sure.
