This song comforts. This song talks about the One who loves us unconditionally. I have to get pink magic to help me focus. :)
The naked earth is warm with spring,
And with green grass and bursting trees
Leans to the sun's gaze glorying,
And quivers in the sunny breeze;
And life is colour and warmth and light,
And a striving evermore for these;
And he is dead who will not fight;
And who dies fighting has increase.
The fighting man shall from the sun
Take warmth, and life from the glowing earth;
Speed with the light-foot winds to run,
And with the trees to newer birth;
And find, when fighting shall be done,
Great rest, and fullness after dearth.
All the bright company of Heaven
Hold him in their high comradeship,
The Dog-Star, and the Sisters Seven,
Orion's Belt and sworded hip.
The woodland trees that stand together,
They stand to him each one a friend;
They gently speak in the windy weather;
They guide to valley and ridge's end.
The kestrel hovering by day,
And the little owls that call by night,
Bid him be swift and keen as they,
As keen of ear, as swift of sight.
The blackbird sings to him, "Brother, brother,
If this be the last song you shall sing,
Sing well, for you may not sing another;
In dreary, doubtful, waiting hours,
Before the brazen frenzy starts,
The horses show him nobler powers;
O patient eyes, courageous hearts!
And when the burning moment breaks,
And all things else are out of mind,
And only joy of battle takes
Him by the throat, and makes him blind,
Through joy and blindness he shall know,
Not caring much to know, that still
Nor lead nor steel shall reach him, so
That it be not the Destined Will.
The thundering line of battle stands,
And in the air death moans and sings;
But Day shall clasp him with strong hands,
And Night shall fold him in soft wings.
Since the Tsunami incident in Japan, the world's weather forecast has totally gone haywire. After the winter wind bid us goodbye last January, we totally braced ourselves for another summer. While hoping for pleasant summer, winter revisited and kinda flirted with summer a little that we earthlings could totally feel the love-hate 'radiation' happening within these two. Not to mention how rainy season threw its tantrum every now and then which, kinda messed everything around. That said, I need neoprene knee sleeve to sleep through all the confusions.

Next day, the stinging stomach pain didn't just leave when it was supposed to. Somehow, I managed to pull myself all the way to Paragon to meet friends. That night, my throat got worsen.
I went to school the next day thinking that hey, I am managing and I'm one of the wrestlers! Yet towards noon, I sneezed non-stop and my tutoring students were horrified of my changed of voice. I sounded like being possessed haha! Well, I wasn't surprised at all that I got worsen. How many of my students got the same symptoms? About I reckoned? I went home and my first landing made was the bed. My head and body started hurting so bad, I kept reaching for the tissue roll and loss of appetite. I thought this was it. The big outburst. So next day I opted for a lovely teacher to sub for me and continued the blowing and wiping the whole day! Hobbit came home and took me to the closest Samitivej hosp. They did the horrid h1n1 test but was negative thank God, and prescribed more meds plus 2 days leave.
So here I am today typing with a roll of tissue by my side, a bag of meds the other side and boxes of juice/water to keep me hydrated. My BB is on duty non-stop, delivering my students' "What happened to you Ms. Amy?" Anyway, I hope I will feel much better tomorrow because I am planning to jog this evening to sweat, sweat, sweat!!!
