Welcome to Clutchpen and a very happy Maritime Day to you all!
Do you need a bit of music to put you in a seafaring state of mind? Enjoy a listen: Scilly Shanty Singers singing Row Boatman Row. These fellows live in the Isles of Scilly and sing a cappella folk songs.
We are quite landlocked in Clutchpen but we have pictures, such as this old print of “Eventide” by Anton Otto Fischer.
I love the watercolor seascapes of Alwyn Crawshaw. He and wife June live and paint in Norfolk.
Even the glass bookends have ships, and a wavy, watery quality which catches the light.
Also, today is my birthday. To celebrate the 22nd of May, here are 22 four-leaf clovers.
Lastly, here is a poem written by my daddy years ago:
Rainbows and time to bide
Now forth we go a searching
Where should a four-leaf clover hide
Among the charms of Spring.
- Tanny Gupton Barnes
Do enjoy the remainder of the Merry Month of May! Until next time…
