I always like that poem, having 'butted through the Channel', myself more than once, I can relate to that image of the sea.
Doesn't the queen look lovely in yellow. She should wear that colour more often. :)
Wow. Your post is chock-full of wonderful tidbits. Great poem and I think the Queen looks rather lovely in yellow!
did not know that middle word at all! used to sing at school, but don't recognize that.ROG, ABC Wednesday team
Hello Cris ! Forgive me, I am very late on your blog but I have stille some ptoblems with my mother.I watched on the Tv the wedding off Willian and Kate. The qeen Elisabeth was very elegant in yellow.The painting of the boat is very beautiful and the duck family great.I saw your new blender. Over here Mother's days is on May 29.
Ups ! CHRIS !
And you've taught me something new too! I did have music at least once a week all through grade school. Art too. In high school, those were elective classes and I never did take any of them. (I was worried I wasn't good enough so avoided both.) I'm not sure the schools still have music, though I know of at least one that still has it at the grade school level. Art too. Not so common these days though.
Oh my goodness, I remember having to learn that poem by heart in school -- and I remember failing miserably with my inadequate memory. But for some reason I was aways able to remember the last verse.Lovely Qs, Chris. I enjoyed the royal wedding for all its pomp and tradition, and I do have admiration for the Queen. She has held up well under many difficult circumstances.
I think I have seen the Queen in yellow already, she likes bright colors. She actually looks very nice for her age !
All of your photos fit the bill for "Q", but I quickly decided that the photo of the queen was the winner entry.
Great post for Q. When I saw the Queen in her yellow outfit on TV it made me smile. She looks great!
What fun to learn a new word.[Rather a difficult one to work into a conversation.]Our last years in Wyoming gave us a pond and several families of Mallards with ducklings. I always tried not to count them.
Yes, I think Yellow is really a nice color for the Queen. She wore it so brightly and nicely.Love the boat and verse, and that little family of "Quackers" is adorable.Good job, Chris!
Lovely Queen.Please find out what my Q is at Nostalgic Marveling
My Dad would quote that poem at EVERY opportunity.Thanks for the memory.Jane x
A lovely set of 'q's, Chris. x
I remember quite clearly learning John Masefield's poem by heart at school - it's only in recent years that I discovered what a quinquireme is though:)
