which shake with cold" Shakespeare Sonnet 73

That hardly sway before a breeze" E.Dowson

which I stand in, warmed.
One touch lasts a thousand hours "

I close my eyes
let out a sigh
and pretend I am there again" E.Ayers

thats where I will stay
living out my new life plan
sitting by the Netherland Bay."

and Lady Smocks all silver - white
and Cuckoos buds of yellow here
do paint the meadows with delight."
