Vacation Time

For the next ~week I’ll be off to some adventures in the land of milk & honey so the post count will go down a bit for a few days but I’ll queue up the daily picture theme days for you. See you, milkies!

Free Candy!

Count Candy is back! I looked for a new home for Count Candy and here we go, it’s back and better than ever. I’ll be the Co-Editor from now on by the way ;) The Count will post the boys and – oh, the daringness – girls while I’ll take care of the more strange posts. Go and get a sweet surprise every day!

Thou wast all that to me, love,
For which my soul did pine-
A green isle in the sea, love,
A fountain and a shrine,
All wreathed with fairy fruits and flowers,
And all the flowers were mine.

Ah, dream too bright to last!
Ah, starry Hope! that didst arise
But to be overcast!
A voice from out the Future cries,
“On! on!”- but o’er the Past
(Dim gulf!) my spirit hovering lies
Mute, motionless, aghast!

For, alas! alas! me
The light of Life is o’er!
“No more- no more- no more-”
(Such language holds the solemn sea
To the sands upon the shore)
Shall bloom the thunder-blasted tree
Or the stricken eagle soar!

And all my days are trances,
And all my nightly dreams
Are where thy grey eye glances,
And where thy footstep gleams-
In what ethereal dances,
By what eternal streams.

E. A. Poe
