The dawn leads on another day…

David Alexander-Sinclair of Freswick

2nd may 1927 – 7th February 2014

Fear no more the heat o’ th’ sun
    Nor the furious winter’s rages;
Thou thy worldly task hast done,
    Home art gone and ta’en thy wages.
Golden lads and girls all must,
As chimney-sweepers, come to dust.

Fear no more the frown o’ th’ great;
    Thou art past the tyrant’s stroke.
Care no more to clothe and eat;
    To thee the reed is as the oak.
The sceptre, learning, physic, must
All follow this and come to dust. 

Shakespeare. Cymbeline Act IV. Scene III

  1. But am simply too unwilling to use it within the kitchen because of staining.

  2. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which
    makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and
    visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to
    create your theme? Excellent work!

    I just saw a picture of you at the NGS meeting and was struck by the resemblance to your father. A handsome man who is not dust but lives on through you.

    Just saw this today & if I could think of the right words would write them. But I’m afraid you will have to make do with the thought.
