Whispering White

"Know you what it is to be a child?

. . . it is to believe in love,

to believe in loveliness,

to believe in belief;

it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear;

it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses,

lowness into loftiness,

and nothing into everything,

for each child has its fairy godmother in its soul."

Francis Thompson, Shelley, In the Dublin Review [July 1908]

Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of the world! Ciao! for now!
