Drift off to pleasant slumber.
Lay your weary soul to rest.
Do not forget the number
Of the days that you have spent.
Dance in ballrooms of starlight,
With faceless lovers of song.
Rest in simple moonlight,
Let dreams guide your footsteps along.
Curl up in your bed now,
Safe in invisible arms.
And I will tell you how,
I love you in the morn.
Good night, Tumblr! See you in ten days. I’m off to the seaside.
Meyer May House, Grand Rapids, MI
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Meyer May House is considered to be an exemplary example of the Prairie style. Built in 1908-1909, it features a hip roof with broad overhanging eaves, art glass windows in horizontal bands and pale brick that were common features of Wright’s houses. Wright designed nearly every aspect of the house, including the furniture, windows, light fixtures and rugs. The house underwent a major restoration in 1986. Nearly everything appears as it would have originally, including a mural of hollyhocks that had been covered by layers of paint for years. The house is open for (free!) tours.
Say hello to the Hoochie Coochie Mancunian. The best thing to come out of manchester since, well me.
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum,
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.
Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message “He is Dead.”
Put crepe bows round the white…
