Tag, You’re It

I was tagged by Lyndsay of Lovely Disco fame to show my heart in one picture, one poem, one song, one item of clothing, one quote, one place and one Disney princess. Not too sure how interpret this, but I presume it’s about picking items that show ‘me’, so here we go…

Poem:

I Taste a Liquor Never Brewed
by Emily  Dickinson

I taste a liquor never brewed-
From tankards scooped in pearl-
Not all the vats upon the Rhine-
Yield such an alcohol!.

Inebriate of air am I-
And debauchee of dew-
Reeling, through endless summer days-
From inns of molten blue.

When landlords turn the drunken bee-
Out of the foxglove’s do-
When butterflies renounce their drams-
I shall but drink the more!

Till seraphs swing their snowy hats-
And saints to windows run-
To see the little tippler-
Leaning against the sun!

Song:

Hanson -Mmm Bop

You have so many relationships in this life
Only one or two will last
You go through all the pain and strife
Then you turn your back and they’re gone so fast
And they’re gone so fast
Oh so hold on the ones who really care
In the end they’ll be the only ones there
When you get old and start losing your hair
Can you tell me who will still care?
Can you tell me who will still care?
Oh, okay yeah,

Mmm bop, ba du ba dop
Ba du ba dop, Du be du ba du be dop
Du be dop, ah, doo. Yeah,
Mmm bop, ba du ba dop
Ba du ba dop, Du be du ba du be dop
Du be dop, ah, doo. Yeah,

Plant a seed, plant a flower, plant a rose
You can plant any one of those
Keep planting to find out which one grows
It’s a secret no one knows
It’s a secret no one knows

(repeat chorus)

In an mmmbop they’re gone. In an mmmbop they’re not there
In an mmmbop they’re gone. In an mmmbop they’re not there
Until you lose your hair. But you don’t care.

(repeat chorus)

Can you tell me? No ya can’t cuz’ ya don’t know.
Can you tell me? You say you can, but you don’t know.
Can you tell me which flower’s going to grow?
Can you tell me if it’s going to be a daisy or a rose?
Can you tell me which flower’s going to grow?
Can you tell me? You say you can but you don’t know.
Say you can but you don’t know.
You don’t know how, ya don’t know, OH…

Mmm bop,… Du bop,… Du bop,… DOOOO. Yeah,
Mmm bop,… Du bop,… Du bop,… DOOOO. Okay.

(chourus 2x)

Can you tell me? No ya can’t cuz’ ya don’t know.
Can you tell me? You say you can, but you don’t know.
Say you can, but you don’t know.

Item of Clothing:

Greg’s grey wool jumper (sorry bout the fuzzy picture)


Quote:

“The compelling thing about making art – or making anything, I suppose – is the moment when the vaporous, insubstantial idea becomes a solid there, a thing, a substance in a world of substances.”

Clare -The Time Traveler’s Wife

Place:

Haven’t found a place yet ….unless my bed counts!
