The Prince of Egypt

February 21, 2015
The Prince of Egypt

A few months ago, I mentioned the song Deliver Us from the 1998 film The Prince of Egypt in the article about Ofra Haza. Due to the widespread success of this adaptation (it won an Oscar for  the song When You Believe) and to the fact that it has the capacity to captivate small children […]

High Flight

December 15, 2014
High Flight

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth, And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds, –and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of –Wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there I’ve chased the shouting wind along, […]

HERE Surrounding the island There’s sea. But what sea? It’s always overflowing. Says yes, Then no, Then no again, And no, Says yes In blue In sea spray Raging, Says no And no again. It can’t be still. It stammers My name is sea. It slaps the rocks And when they aren’t convinced, Strokes them […]

Daffodils

Daffodils

I wander’d lonely as a cloud That floats on high o’er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the Milky Way, They stretch’d in never-ending […]
