Ceremonies for Christmas

Come, bring with a noise,
My merry, merry boys,
The Christmas log to the firing,
While my good dame, she
Bids ye all be free,
And drink to your heart’s desiring.

SAS Malicious Styling3

With the last year’s brand
Light the new block, and
For good success in his spending,
On your psalteries play,
That sweet luck may
Come while the log is a-teending.

SAS Malicious Styling2

Drink now the strong beer,
Cut the white loaf here,
The while the meat is a-shredding;
For the rare mince-pie,
And the plums stand by,
To fill the paste that’s a kneading.

…Night and light and the half light…

Natalya Gown by SAS2

“Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.”
~W.B. Yeats, The Wind Among the Reeds~

Excerpt from
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
Lyrics by Hugh Martin

Before I loved you…

Before I loved you, love, nothing was my own:
I wavered through the streets, among objects:
Nothing mattered or had a name:
The world was made of air, which waited.

SAS BW Gown st2

I knew rooms full of ashes,
Tunnels where the moon lived,
Rough warehouses that growled ‘get lost’,
Questions that insisted in the sand.

SAS BW Gown st collage

Everything was empty, dead, mute,
Fallen abandoned, and decayed:
Inconceivably alien, it all

SAS BW Gown st1

Belonged to someone else – to no one:
Till your beauty and your poverty
Filled the autumn plentiful with gifts.

You Wouldn’t Fool Me, Would You?

You’ll have to go soon
Say you’re glad you met me
It will be so soon that you quite forget me
This I’ll impart to you
For it is now or never
I give me heart to you forever

Styling at The Fiume Collage

You wouldn’t fool me, would you?
because I am not fooling you
Don’t be like that!
You wouldn’t fool me, baby?
