That tips the Hills with Gold

Whose rosy fingers ope the Gates of Day

Hail - Hail - Hail - Hail - Hail - Hail  !


That tips the Hills with Gold

Who smiling face of Nature doth unfold

Hail  - Hail - Hail - Hail - Hail - Hail

At whose bright presence - banish dark & Cold !


Who smiling face of Nature doth unfold

Whose rosy fingers ope the Gates of Day

At whose bright presence ~ banish dark & cold



Thanks for visiting - comments please - ANGELA  🧡🧡🧡


This PANTOUM was inspired by FAYS POEM *OUTING*

yesterday !  It is based on an Old Carol we used to sing

round the Houses with the Church Choir all snug in a Van   

@ Christmas and get invited in for Mulled Wine and Mince

Pies - when I was a TEENAGER !  Best when it snowed !

BRIAN tells me there have been some lovely SUNRISES

in Essex this week and temperatures in the 30's (86 F)

    A fine write B&A. Fido is all prim and proper. He doesn't know if they would say 'Hooray'! He says it might be too 'common'! Heehee. We'll say/sing it anyway. Quiet now Fido! lol. He's a spoilsport!


      Thanks UNCLE STEVE - ANGELA here - You up with the Lark (and the SUN !) this Morning ? FIDO is a stickler for propriety We do sometimes sing Hooray in the Evangelical Churches - but not often enough. In C of E & Catholic we sing HOSSANAH which is more PROPER. Ive had a lovely Day here but its 6:30 pm (SAT) now the Day is almost over. Pleased you enjoyed the presentation !

      Blessings to YOU & YOUR Censoring Cur !
      Love in the Spirit ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡

        Let's have 'hooray' too, but not Hooray Henry! I know a place where I reckon they have Fidos, if they have pets. And they don't want too many Alleluias either! I can't imagine them 'jumping up and down' or anything too 'lively!'

              I thought there was a hailstorm! Woof, no, says Fido. I not quite got the theme of the poem. lol.

              • ANGELA & BRIAN

                Oooooooooo UNCLE STEVE - You always make me laff with your droll comments ! HAIL as you should know ! Its an old ROMAN GREETING as in *HAIL CEASAR !* Your humour is catching ! I hve a friend in the Hospital called MISTER STONE (a very tough Man !) and I always greet Him with a raised arm salute (good exercise - at full stretch) with HAIL STONE ! He always smiles back !

                Blessings for SUNDAY - ANGELA !

              • Christina8

                Well done Angela! And beautiful picture too!

                • ANGELA & BRIAN

                  HOLA CHRISTINA - Angela aqui ! Es midinotte aqui - tiempo por la mia cama ! Si Auckland is very picturesque and with both Islands being narrow we get to see a beautiful Sunrise & Sunset every day ! The MAORIS are like the Native Americans and live very close to Nature. They used to be PANTHEISTS (Nature Worshippers) but now many are Christians - AMEN ! *Morning has Broken* is one of my fave Nature - Hymns and we sing it with the Maori Choir !

                  Blessings & Peace & Joy to YOU & YOURS
                  Love ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡💙🧡💙🧡💙🧡

                  Cari Amici Angela e Brian,
                  Una bella poesia e foto dedicata al Buon Giorno!
                  This reminded me of the song, “Oh, What A Beautiful Morning”!
                  A fine write which I enjoyed reading!

                  Abbracci e Baci...
