A piano Virtuoso or Visiting with the youngest Greatgrands

The mums and the boys, out for a stroll in their amazing push carts,

stopped for tea

and a little gleeful piano entertainment

You're going to love this piece!!

well, perhaps it gets a little loud here......

but isn't it fun!!!!!!

A solemn ending....

the little one listened and smiled

and took nourishment

while the adults sat around pulling silly faces

to elicit these lovely grins!

ABC Wednesday
March 25th, 2015

K is the letter

Omar Khayyam and lines from his Rubaiyat are the subject

Omar Khayyam was a Persian poet, mathematician and astronomer who lived from 1048-1131, well known for his mathematical theories, but also for his poetry, especially among the Romantics!!

Here with a Loaf of Bread beneath the Bough,
A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse - and Thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness -
And Wilderness is Paradise enow.

or perhaps...

Ah, my Beloved, fill the Cup that clears
Today of past Regrets and Future Fears -
Tomorrow? - Why, Tomorrow I may be
Myself with Yesterday's Sev'n Thousand Years

Lo! some we loved, the loveliest and the best
That Time and Fate of all their Vintage prest,
Have drunk their Cup a Round or two before,
And one by one crept silently to Rest.

 or this....

I sometimes think that never blows so Red
The Rose as where some buried Caesar bled;
That every Hyacinth the garden Wears
Dropt in its Lap from some once lovely Head.

For more Ks skip on over to ABC Wednesday, here, with many thanks to Roger and Denise, and those who visit on their behalf.
