Blue Monday

I sit in the cafe


I hear footsteps


In the mist


All is echo'd


The Cafe


I wait

Footsteps pass




My coffee is cold.

A Crowley

Steady of purpose,girt with truth,
I pass in my iternal youth,
And watch the centuries wax and wane;
Untouched by Times corroding tooth,
Silent, immortal, unprofane.""

The Listeners by Walter De La Mare

'Is there anybody there?' said the Traveller,
Knocking on the moonlit door;
And his horse in the silence champed the grasses
Of the forest's ferny floor:
And a bird flew up out of the turret,
Above the Traveller's head
And he smote upon the door again a second time;
'Is there anybody there?' he said.
But no one descended to the Traveller;
No head from the leaf-fringed sill
Leaned over and looked into his grey eyes,
Where he stood perplexed and still.
But only a host of phantom listeners
That dwelt in the lone house then
Stood listening in the quiet of the moonlight
To that voice from the world of men:
Stood thronging the faint moonbeams on the dark stair,
That goes down to the empty hall,
Hearkening in an air stirred and shaken
By the lonely Traveller's call.
And he felt in his heart their strangeness,
Their stillness answering his cry,
While his horse moved, cropping the dark turf,
'Neath the starred and leafy sky;
For he suddenly smote on the door, even
Louder, and lifted his head:-
'Tell them I came, and no one answered,
That I kept my word,' he said.
Never the least stir made the listeners,
Though every word he spake
Fell echoing through the shadowiness of the still house
From the one man left awake:
Ay, they heard his foot upon the stirrup,
And the sound of iron on stone,
And how the silence surged softly backward,
When the plunging hoofs were gone.

White Burgundies from the COTE de BEAUNE include Puligny Montrachet, Le Montrachet and Meursault.
The COTE de NUITS famous commune names are Fixin, Moray Saint-Denis, Vosne-Romanee, La Tache and Nuits-Saint-Georges.
The COTE du RHONE stretches from Lyon down to Avignon. Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Hermitage (and the finest French Rose) - Tavel are the most famous.
