    and faith -

    i somehow had to think of this poem, virtually every kid in Romania knows it by heart in kindergarten :-)

    by Tudor Arghezi
    (tr. by Cristina Hanganu-Bresch)

    Did you happen to see Rag,
    China eyes under that shag?
    He’s a dog with ragged fur
    Very handsome, as it were.
    Looks like he is patched together
    Ragged tatter over tatter.
    Shreds of fur over his eyes
    Put his nose into disguise.
    He’s all tangled as a fool
    Like he’s freshly spun from wool.
    But amazingly, this slobber
    Is a cunning, practiced robber.
    Loiters by the chicken coop
    With his scruffy furry droop,
    Waiting calmly for a hen
    To lay eggs for him again,
    Clucking happily as she
    Makes a fresh egg instantly.
    Since he’s been in this household
    He has learnt a lot, I’m told,
    And he crawls, at steady pace,
    Slinks towards that hidden place,
    Paw and muzzle through the hole,
    And he swallows the egg whole!

    “Where’s the egg?” Asked then the lady,
    Of the house, “It’s gone—he ate it!”
    “Wait a minute, I’ll unlearn you,
    Of this rotten habit, too!
    I will teach you not to steal.”—
    So a hot egg was his meal.
    But as soon as Rag chowed down,
    He dropped it quickly with a frown
    And swore with a big bow-wow.

    When he looks now at the hen—
    Next door neighbor, in her pen—
    Mutters Rag begrudgingly:
    “Damn! She’s trickier than me!”

    (oh and the first image is gorgeous)

  5. Beautiful series, looks like springtime has arrived!

  6. Looking at your photos there is impossible not to have faith:)

  7. These photos are so 'solid' looking... they are pleasing and enticing.

    Thanks for your recommendation on the shoo-fly plant :-D Have a great day!

  8. Lovely photographs again Prospero. Hard to pick a winner...
    You set a high standard. Well done.

  9. Beautiful photos, Prospero! And I have faith..

  10. I have faith as well - in the miracle of spring, the miracle of life.

  11. Hm, strange. I was thinking about You some hours ago, but didnt entered the garden. Well, i am knocking at the door right now.

  12. How wonderful!
    Cute Angelina.
    Love the title.
    Looking on what's eternal.


  13. Angelina's face is so sweet! I have faith that we will have Spring weather again, for more than one day at a time :)
    The last flower picture cheered me right up!

  14. I have thinking about your faith from yesterday. We don't have any faith. But we have love.

  15. I really love the depth of color and composition in all of those.

  16. The word Faith has such a sweet sound to it. I can see how Faith would shine from the eyes of lovely Angelina.

    I am enraptured with the picture of flowers, and I utterly enjoyed the chickens. How is it possible you have made an ethereal lovely chicken? I think it is near impossible--yet that is what you did.
