I Want My Roses To See You

"Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose-garden."
T. S. Eliot

You'll Notice It's Knots

"To early man, trees were objects of awe and wonder.
The mystery of their growth,
the movement of their leaves and branches,
the way they seemed to die and come again to life in spring,
the sudden growth of the plant from the seed -
all these appeared to be miracles as indeed they still are,
miracles of nature!"

Ruskin Bond - The World of Trees

All Sides Of Christmas, And The Jolly Old Elf

"You better watch out,
You better not cry,
Better not pout,
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town"

Bing Crosby

The Winds Will Blow Their Freshness

"When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy,
And the dimpling stream runs laughing by;
When the air does laugh with our merry wit,
And the green hill laughs with the noise of it (...)"
William Blake - Laughing Song
