DP weekly photo challenge: half light

How often do poems and music combine? Ever since I learned to sing “Aedh Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven,” by William Butler Yeats it was always one of my favourite poems/songs, (listen to it here) , closely followed by Robert Frost’s “Stopping by woods on a snowy evening”.

Stopping by woods on a snowy evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sounds the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

a word a week: music

Sue’s “A word a week” challenge this week was MUSIC

Music to watch the sun go down by. Musicians play to people who have gathered to watch the setting sun on the ghats at Pushkar, Rajasthan.

Sri Lanka holds music in such high esteem that a dancer and a musician are featured on one of its banknotes
