Today I have two more Ku-dos to Emily. The first one I spent hours on only to trash it and start over. However, I learned from my mistakes and I finished this version in almost no time (you can teach an old dog new tricks). It tickled me to think of Lassie and Timmy and how Lassie always came to the rescue.
The next photo I took at Trinity Church in Boston, at one of the Boston Book Festival Events in October 2013. I like to take random photos because you never know when they might come in handy to illustrate a poem! The Dickinson poem I found a bit perplexing. So many of her poems have a religious bent, yet this one seems to be mocking faith. I took the view that for many, it's better not to put all your eggs in one basket! (Which reminds me of a Fred Astaire song, which I'll find and add below, not that it's related in any way to these poems!)
Irene Latham, at Live Your Poem, is playing Round-Up host this week. Stop by and say "hello!"
As promised, Fred and Ginger--"I'm Putting All My Eggs in One Basket." Watch the whole thing! There's some fantastic comedic dancing. Luckily Ginger doesn't have to do it backwards and in heels, but she sure takes a beating!
