THE SATURDAY SYMPHONY #21 (Timeless Literature)

Find me,
Upon familiar paths,
Searching sacred pages,
Learning something new each time…

“Roads go ever on
Under cloud and star
Yet feet that wandering have done
Turn at last to home afar
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known”

~J.R.R Tolkien~

Welcome to the 21st edition of The Saturday Symphony.
Hope you are all well and filled with festive cheer.

Let us sit back, kick off our shoes and journey together through the shifting sands of time.

Timeless Literature

This week’s three featured posts

  1. And everything in between by HemalathaBeautiful and imperfect love.
  2. Goodbye by SpatikaThe strength of intuition.
  3. Eraser by ShrubaPoetic justice.

“TAKE, O take these lips away.
That so sweetly were forsworn;
And these eyes, the break of day,
Lights that do not mislead the morn!
But my kisses bring again.
Bring again;
Seals of love, but seal’d in vain,
Seal’d in vain!”

~William Shakespeare~

For you, forever

PONDEROUS THOUGHT Prompt

TIMELESS LITERATURE

This week, share a bit of your all time favourite works of literature.
The ones you have read over and over again.
A novel, poetry, story, thesis, and the like.
No obligation to post the original, but quoting is okay.
Just let it inspire your post,
And tell us where the inspiration came from.

You’re more than welcome to use art, images, and any form of writing for your post.

Be sure to Pingback to this feature edition, so others can join in. And so I can find you and feature your post in Saturday’s edition.

Timeless works and festive cheer.
Pure Bliss!

Percy held the lightning bolt
Harry carried one as well
Fate flashing destiny.
Grisham with the darkest tales
And Sheldon on the other side of midnight
Gripping and suspenseful.
Atop those wuthering heights
Three dark queens, and three dark crowns await
Rapunzel,
Won’t you let down your hair

Works that last more than a lifetime

Ponderous writers from last week’s edition

“DREAMCATCHER”

Thank you all, lots of love.

Pirouetting amongst all the beautiful posts.

“Some say the world will end in fire
Some say in ice
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favour fire
But if it had to perish twice
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction, Ice
Is also great
And would suffice.”

~Robert Frost~

Remember to pingback to this post, and to paste the link to your post in the comments section, just to be sure I find you.

Merry Merry Christmas from here at The Symphony.

Can’t wait to read your entries. Stay safe, and have a great time. Catch you throughout the week.

Bright lights
Christening snows
Dazzling festive rays of sun
Stranger far away
Gift me a tale
On this Christmas day

Merry Symphony Christmas.

    Amazing post, Jude, as usual. I love each of the quoted pieces, and they are also some of my favorites. The theme is beautiful.
    I got late (sorry for that) to participate in the last one, so decided to turn in this one early.
    Have an enjoyable festive season, Jude.

    Perhaps Peter Pan isn’t classic lit. But it is the story I chose to include in my series here: (65) Damned Family 2p (Norman; A Lost Boy?)

    There are so many classics that I haven’t read all the way through. Perhaps once the libraries are easier to access in person I might try to include some in my reading list for the new year. Some of my favorites though are more children’s books than adult classics. Lile “Heidi”, “Pinocchio”, “The Wizard of Oz” and “Alice in Wonderland”.
