BRIAN & I : We love to EXPLORE

UP & DOWN steps in Pastures new

Venturing through a PRIVATE DOOR

Just to explore & savour the VIEW !


UP & DOWN steps in Pastures new

Lost in FRANCE or rural PENZANCE

Just to explore & savour the VIEW

*WALK ON* for US is a Game of Chance ! 


Lost in FRANCE or rural PENZANCE

Reading a MAP that*s upside down

*WALK ON* for US is a Game of Chance

In a New Country & In a New Town !


Reading a MAP that*s upside down

Makes US go LEFT : When WE should go RIGHT

In a New Country & In a New Town 

Arrive at the INN in the Dead of Night !


Makes US go LEFT : When we should go RIGHT

Venturing through a PRIVATE DOOR

Arrive at the INN in the Dead of Night

BRIAN & I ~ WE love to EXPLORE !


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love  B & A  🧡🧡🧡


A PANTOUM is a classical poetic form ~ in which each line

is repeated systematically once only ! Lines 2 & 4 in Verse

One become Lines 1 & 3 (Lines 2 & 4 are new)in Verse Two.

This process is continued until the Final Verse. You decide 

how many verses you want. In the above case FIVE. In the

Final Verse Lines 1 & 3 are Lines  2 & 4 of the Penultimate 

Verse and Lines 2 & 4 are Lines 3 & 1 of Verse One ! By this

every line is repeated  ONCE for emphasis. The First & Last

Line of the PANTOUM are identical !  Strangely enough it

really does work in practice ! Why not try one for Yourself !

    As long as you are together in your life of love wherever you go you will never be lost.

    As an aside the Song "You Will Never Walk Alone" is so meaningful in many ways. To me it alwasy remionds me of Carousel, the 1945 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. The song is sung about half way through the musical and then it reprises at the end by that time I am in floods of tears so I do not watch Carousel anymore, I do play the music from the film and I had it on a couple of days ago.


      Thanks UNCLE ANDY ~ I have seen & heard YNWA in Carousdel ~ BUT being a Scouser I always associate it with Liverpool FC ~ who we are very proud of this Season ~ and singing on the KOP ! My DAD tells me that when Billy Graham came to Liverpool in 1984 (I was almost ONE) the Crusade was at ANFIELD. Dad was in the Choir and they persuaded CLIFF BARROWS to Sing YNWA with a 1000 Voice Scouse Choir and the audience of 40,000 all joined in ~ ELECTRIC ! YES I guess after NOVEMBER ~ Angela & I will never again walk alone ~ Ive just got to get her back to ESSEX !

      Blessings & Peace & Love
      Yours ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡

      I gotta work out the maths of his phantom (?) thingy first, before I go any further! Good write B&A.
      I always repeat everything twice anyway; I said, I always....... Woof! Do shut up, Orchi, says Fido!
