    Incredible city... Wikipedia: "Elizabeth Bishop, American poet and short-story writer, lived partly in Petropolis for 17 years (1944–61) with Lota de Macedo Soares, architect and landscape designer.[56]"

    Appears that the monarch period was blessed with Pedro I, and especially Pedro II.

    Beautiful poem by Helen Hunt Jackson

    Yes,and it seems to have inspired the poet.https://english.williams.edu/excerpt...ishops-brazil/

    Here you can have the idea of the house, Elisabeth Bishop is named as one of its first owners.

    Yes, one can see thee influences of her adopted home. Found this for the residence... https://casasbrasileiras-wordpress-c...n&_x_tr_pto=sc Beautiful rambling home, and with servants !

    Loved the poem I once transplanted numerous violets in a bed of Ajuga when I lived in Magalia.

    re: Elisabeth Bishop. Yes, Lota belonged to a traditional and wealthy family and having servants was quite usual in those households. According to the film. the poet had her own apartment, separated from the Manor House, where she could write her poems. The problem, also according to the film, was that Lota worked in Rio de Janeiro(about 2 hours by car from Petropolis) so Bishop often was alone in the house. Maybe it was that circumstance, that ultimately destroyed their relationship.

    Liked the poem but hope people there have enough food.
    Looked it up, you seem to enjoy living in small towns. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magalia,_California

    Re: Elizabeth Bishop: Ah, wondered why the split-up and Lota's subsequent demise.

    Magalia and Garden Valley (as well as Georgetown, CA) are examples of rural areas in the California foothills where the low to middle class/retirees relocated after home and apartment prices skyrocketed in the cities and suburbs here in California.

    Loved the poem by Conrad Aiken; dense, yet simple - easy to get lost in

    re: It seems though, that you made a very good deal, when you bought this spacious property with area for several houses, planting areas (garden, vegetable garden), grazing area and woods (with a bonus fauna of foxes, bears, deer, lions, etc.).
    Iīm trying to sell my apartment, but itīs not easy. It is small but it has everything one needs, including a room for PC and most of the book shelves, a small balcony(place for two cats) and a laundry area. The problem is selling it well enough to buy a somewhat smaller but still confy place. The house market now is boxing people up in apartments between 22-30 mē.

    Enjoyed the "Zippers" poem, with itīs modern form. Now allow me to go one letter back for I found by accident, what I was looking for before:

    So sorry about Taffy and THumper & Bumper! The fame of both crossed the Equator and Taffy was a champion living more than 20 years. The great defect of pets: they are mortal

    Beautiful fitting poem!

    "Heavenly Nap
    by Ron Tranmer

    Your nine lives here have ended
    my loving furry friend,
    and you've been called to heaven
    to live life number ten.
    It's so hard to lose a pet
    who's loved as much as you,
    but God and all His angels
    are going to love you too.

    I'll bet you're lying peacefully
    upon an angel's lap.
    Purring there without a care,
    enjoying a heavenly nap.

    Oh how I will miss you.
    But time will pass and then,
    one day I'll call your name
    and you'll be on my lap again."
    https://www.rainbowsbridge.com/stori...042993750.aspx

    Tomorow we go on with "b".

    ... Ah, I'll have to try that too - it's hit or miss otherwise.
