Do you think this is the best?
(...) Then the Swallow came back to the Prince. ‘You are blind now,’ he said, ‘so I will stay with you always.’
‘No, little Swallow,’ said the poor Prince, ‘you must go away to Egypt.’
‘I will stay with you always,’ said the Swallow, and he slept at the Prince’s feet. (...)
From ‘The Happy Prince’, a marvellous and touching tale by Oscar Wilde.
A nice quote :) I don’t recall ever reading Oscar Wilde but he has a good reputation for a reason it seems! :)
Yeah, this is a poignant tale which teaches a lot about the most important things in life. It makes you cry, although it is filled with the usual Wilde’s irony and sarcasm, especially towards politicians and institutions. I would recommend this story to anyone who cares.
p.s. Quaternions, thanks for creating this Swallow file, I love swallows. I wait for them and, as soon as I hear their sounds early in April, it makes me feel better. It’s nice to know that, although travelling for miles and miles, they will be coming back every year, to find their same, favourite, place.
I love the Dawn Chorus altho i’m not so keen at being awake to hear it lol. Not sure if swallows are part of the dawn chorus or not tho :)
Yeah, well at least here in my city! In the Summer they sing along with sparrows and other lovely creatures.. But I only get to hear it when I go to bed very late and cannot find sleep.. ;). Or possibly while doing something else at night!! ;)
Whenever i’m outside i’ll be looking for swallows now :D
I need something more interesting to do while i’m in bed lol. Perhaps i’ll buy The Happy Prince :D lol
Tonight I could not sleep and heard the dawn chorus!!
i thought of you, quaternons!
And I noticed that sparrows and other birds start the chanting, swallows join a little later…hahahah!!!
Maybe i was one of the sparrows singing to you ;) If there is a peck at your bedroom window early in the morning then that’ll be me, come to see how you compare to Monica ;) lol
ok I’ll check that out!! Not that I look best while sleeping!!! LOL
Well stay up and wait for me, and put a bit of makeup on lol
I might be the black swallow coming to knock at your window!! lol Well you do not live in Liverpool anymore, so.. to Wales is a little harder…
I don’t know what a “black swallow” is. Anyway i’ll leave the window open, it’ll save you knocking! :D
It’s just that some swallows are black, and I might be one of them. ;-)
Pink is a better colour for a girl. You couldn’t be a “pink swallow” could you? lol
Oh no, I don’t like pink that much. Red? so you can be happy about football? ;-)
p.s. I chose black for my hair colour!!
Jet Black is my fave hair colour. The darker the better really :D
A Red Swallow is good :D And the Reds will reign supreme in the Champions League final for sure :D lol.
I have dark brown hair. How about you? Just curious.
Of course the Reds will triumph! Sorry about Milan.
NOt sure about the Reds, though.. Milan did pretty well last time… ;-)
I have short dark brown hair, brown/green eyes, average height and build. No tattoos, swallow or otherwise :)
AC Milan fans will be crying for sure lol
;-D sounds good!
well with such a fan, the reds will definitely win.
I don’t think AC did very well in the last final at all lol. They were lucky to score their 3 goals. They were probly cheating and paid off the referee. Hmmm, i might be a bit biased lol.
I’m going to add a picture of a Red Swallow :)
VEry nice swallow!
No comment on football, ....;-)
Paying off referees is all part of the fun anyway! Maybe Liverpool paid more than AC in the last match lol.
that sounds better! ;-)
I wonder what the price for the referee in the next Liverpool v AC match will be :)
I wonder if we could pay someone to nobble Kaka as well, he’s just too good haha :)
when is the match? just curious….
23rd May, in 2 weeks :)
YOu sound pretty excited… you like footie a lot, don’t you? ;-)
I’m looking forward to the match. When we won it last time for the home coming parade there were 250,000 people on the streets. So it was a big deal :D And as a general rule i get excited about a lot of stuff lol.
MMMhhh… that’s interesting!
I am not really into football, although I do understand quite something about it – not totally illiterate, if you see what I mean. and of course I did enjoy the world cup last year, for obvious reasons! ;-)
The World Cup would have been better if the England “Stars” hadn’t played like a bunch of daffodils lol
I know… seriously, I think you’d deserve another cup. Next time!!
Italy did play well, credit to them. I knew they’d win the tournament when they beat australia :)
The current England team is worse than the one in the world cup. They aren’t even worth a teacup never mind a world cup lol
There is still time to work on it!
Ooppss aren’t we supposed to talk about swallows??!! LOL
Ok. Let’s talk about swallows again…
I hope a big hole opens up and swallows the whole England team! LOL
hahahahahahha!!!!!!!! LOOOLLLLLLLLL !!!!!!
This is a great joke, well too bad for your team, though!!!
You could buy a small country for the price of the England first team…but they play like they are looking forward to their next bottle of champagne, to be eaten with oysters lol
That is absolutely right… but for all today’s players I’m afraid, not just for the English ones!!!
The Italian squad deserve a bottle or two tho!!! And at least they don’t play like they have had a bottle or two before the matches lol
haha, you are very funny tonight.
I’ll have to go in a while unfortunately… :-(
Awww well. I miss you already. Come back soon my pretty Red Swallow :)
Yeah, I will be back tomorrow…
Hug hug. Ciao ciao. xxxxx
I have something for you, i will upload it when you are around :D
what are you talking about? ;-)
if it’s the new category I saw, well… that was kinky, he??!!!
No it’s not the new category lol, and i didn’t put that there either lol. I’ll send it in a minute :)
wow it sounds as good as the real thing!!!
