Wocky Jivvy: Poetry and Art "When the flush of a new-born sun fell first on Eden's green and gold,
Our father Adam sat under the Tree and scratched with a stick in the mould;
And the first rude sketch that the world had seen was joy to his mighty heart,
Till the Devil whispered behind the leaves, "It's pretty, but is it Art?"
from Rudyard Kipling's The Conundrum of the Workshops

Fool's Gold


Alien Skin


  "Would I were free from this restraint, or else had hope to win her! Would she could make of me a saint or I of her a sinner!"
Fool's Gold Grotto
Alien Skin Old-Fashioned
  "Oh Moon! when I look on thy beautiful face, Careering along through the boundaries of space, The question has frequently come to my mind, If ever I'll gaze on thy glorious behind. "
Fool's Gold Grotto
Alien Skin Old-Fashioned
  "'Tis the Arabian bird alone Lives chaste, because there is but one. But had kind nature made them two, They would like doves and sparrows do. "
Fool's Gold Grotto
Alien Skin Old-Fashioned
  "There's a blush for won't, and a blush for shant, And a blush for having done it. There's a blush for thought and a blush for naught And a blush for just begun it. "
Fool's Gold Grotto
Alien Skin Old-Fashioned
  " My love in her attire doth show her wit, It doth so well become her: For every season she hath dressings fit, for winter, spring, and summer. No beauty she doth miss, When all her robes are on: But Beauty's self she is, When all her robes are gone. "
Fool's Gold Grotto
Alien Skin Old-Fashioned
