And lady-smocks all silver-white
And cuckoo-buds of yellow hue
Do paint the meadows with delight,
The cuckoo then, on every tree,
Mocks married men; for thus sings he,
Cuckoo, cuckoo: Oh word of fear,
Unpleasing to a married ear!
So wrote William Shakespeare in his poem entitled "Spring". Here in Adelaide the jasmine, daffodils and jonquils are all in flower in my garden. So too are my beloved irises (which have never actually stopped flowering) and before too long catkins will appear on the wisteria. Ooh, what a joyous time of the year it is.
As a way of celebrating the arrival of spring, I have decided to have a "Spring Sale" and reduce copies of Dancing the Sacred Wheel by $10.00 when purchased through Paypal. This Spring price includes postage anywhere in Australia as well as the book autographed by myself.
