    • I know not if there is a reason Why I am so sad at heart. A legend of bygone ages Haunts me and will not depart. The air is cool under nightfall. The calm Rhine courses its way. The peak of the mountain is sparkling With evening's final ray. The fairest of maidens is sitting So marvellous up there, Her golden jewels are shining, She's combing her golden hair. She combs with a comb also golden, And sings a song as well Whose melody binds a wondrous And overpowering spell. In his little boat, the boatman Is seized with a savage woe, He'd rather look up at the mountain Than down at the rocks below. I think that the waves will devour The boatman and boat as one; And this by her song's sheer power Fair Lorelei has done.   The Lorelei, Heinrich Heine

    • The Flames of Snow: it’s an attempt to shed light on the forgotten matters in daily life        To write for change is no nobler than to change for writing; change for the sake of writing has the power to give and prevent; to prevent sadness and to give joy; and It is an equation that will be achieved only after insurgency against fixed things becomes the philosophy of life; --- From My New Book " The Flames of Snow" , you can get it from Amazon    Amazon UK - BGO hyperlink AmazonUS - BGO hyperlink   thank u 
    • Why does she turn in that shy soft way Whenever she stirs the fire, And kiss to the chimney-corner wall, As if entranced to admire Its whitewashed bareness more than the sight Of a rose in richest green? I have known her long, but this raptured rite I never before have seen. —Well, once when her son cast his shadow there, A friend took a pencil and drew him Upon that flame-lit wall. And the lines Had a lifelike semblance to him. And there long stayed his familiar look; But one day, ere she knew, The whitener came to cleanse the nook, And covered the face from view. ‘Yes,’ he said: ‘My brush goes on with a rush, And the draught is buried under; When you have to whiten old cots and brighten, What else can you do, I wonder?’ But she knows he's there. And when she yearns For him, deep in the labouring night, She sees him as close at hand, and turns To him under his sheet of white.   Thomas Hardy - 'The Whitewashed Wall'
