Larkworthy Antfarm's curator insight, March 13, 2013 9:59 AM

There Will Come Soft Rains

 

There will come soft rains and the smell of the ground,
And swallows circling with their shimmering sound;

And frogs in the pools singing at night,
And wild plum trees in tremulous white;

Robins will wear their feathery fire,
Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire;

And not one will know of the war, not one
Will care at last when it is done.

Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree,
If mankind perished utterly;

And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn
Would scarcely know that we were gone.

 

Sara Teasdale 1884-1933

The perfect whisky for the perfect man | Urban Culture is my Playground | Scoop.it
Buying gifts for men is a notoriously challenging feat for any woman. Gadgets can be fun, but are likely to end up forgotten on a shelf somewhere, and there are only so many cashmere scarves and leather gloves one man can use.

Larkworthy Antfarm's curator insight, May 25, 2013 1:50 PM

A manual typewriter coated with dust. What kind of story would it type?  Perhaps it would tell us who left his umbrella next to the clock on the old wooden desk under the stairs?    

 

Follow Andre Govia's camera as it uncovers the stories in some of the most amazing abandoned places.  A poet of the eye.
