Road to the beach ........
Wild flowers on the shore .......
Today the sea has an ethereal quality.
I'm reminded of Edward Lear's poem about the owl and the pussy-cat,and imagine
them sailing off over the horizon to far away lands .......
The Owl and the Pussy-cat
The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat:
They took some honey, and plenty of money
Wrapped up in a five-pound note
Edward Lear (1812 - 1888) was an English artist, and writer of humerous nonsense poems.
First published in 1871, "The Owl and the Pussy-cat" has become one
of our best known children's stories.
Pastoral scene painted by Lear during travels in the Balkans.
