About my libraryMy library consists of all the books in the house, both mine and my husbands. Duplicates in the library are from when we moved in with each other and could not bear to part with our favorites, books were given as gifts (unaware that we already owned copies), or books we've read so much we had to buy replacements because the originals were falling apart. One of these days I will go back and mark those I have not read and would like to.

A Little Girl's Prayer

Grant me the moment, the lovely moment
That I may lean forth to see
The other buds, the other blooms,
The other leaves on the tree:

That I may take into my bosom
The breeze that is like his brother,
But stiller, lighter, whose faint laughter
Exhoes the joy of the other.

Above on the blue and white cloud-spaces
There are small clouds at play.
I watch their remote, mysterious play-time
In the other far-away.

Grant I may hear the small birds singing
the song that the silence knows...
(The Light and the Shadow whisper together,
The lovely moment grows,

Ripples into the air like water
Away and away without sound,
And the little girl gets up from her praying
On the cold ground)

- Katherine Mansfield
regarding your comment on the epic fantasy thread - Donaldson has started the The Last Chronicles of Thomas. He's expecting it to be a quartet rather than a trilogy for some reason, and the first two books are already published. Runes of the Earth is the first. I've read both and it's another twist on the fate of the land, the writing style continues pretty much as it was before, so if you enjoye the others I think you'll like these too.

I spent the first half of seeing the musical Wicked talking about how they mucked up the story. By the second half, I stopped expecting the show to be like the book and I enjoyed it more.
