Tradition and Deceleration

Cornish Wind

There is a wind in Cornwall that I know 
From any other wind, because it smells 
Of the warm honey breath of heather-bells 
And of the sea’s salt; and these meet and flow 
With such sweet savour in such sharpness met 
That the astonished sense in ecstasy 
Tastes the ripe earth and the unvintaged sea. 
Wind out of Cornwall, wind, if I forget : 
Not in the tunnelled Streets where scarce men breathe 
The air they live by, but wherever seas 
Blossom in foam, wherever merchant bees 
Volubly traffic upon any heath: 
If I forget, shame me! or if I find 
A wind in England like my Cornish wind.

All creatures great and small


Difficult for actors to extemporise in nineteenth-century English. Except for Robert Hardy and Elizabeth Spriggs, who speak that way anyway.

Oben seht ihr meine Autogrammkarte, die ich mir als „alter“ – All creatures great and small – Liebhaber, mal organisiert habe. Seit dem hängt sie neben den anderen Autogrammkarten von Helen, James und Tristan an der Wand bei mir im Wohnzimmer. Er war so wundervoll als Siegfried !!!  R.i.P.
