                                ~  Merci     Tussie  Mussie   Parfumer~


                       The chill to the moors has come from the north winds
                                Brewing of a plum spice tea fills the air
                           Wrapped in a colorful couette  finding warmth
                                           On a cooler day to spring

                        Ah, the children, nine with precious Grace in my arms
                       To the children's delight of sitting by the fireplace hearth
                          Cuddled  in a circle telling stories of the day to fun
                                      Soon will be in their rooms sharing

Logs to fireplace on the third floor
Embers glowing, warm till mornings light
Laying Grace  in her carved delicate cradle
To the window fastening the shutters
A spring of new arrival onto a wind swirl of  snow

Tussie Mussie grand/'mere hands of tedious hours
Adorn each room for a smile comes to the placement
The children love to touch and sniff the scents
Provence Lavender essence

The armoire of maghony lives in the library
Literary writers books of poetry and lore
Childrens books of Fairytales, edges worn
Tales of enchantment by the hearth of the library grand

Inside the armorie are drawers hidden compartments
You may open the the drawers
A silk lavender ribbon tied round a poetry book
Parfumer bottles lovely glass stoppers a tiny finger high

Grand/'mere gave Grace an heirloom of Bijoux embelished
To the children all treasures too Grand'mere's armoire

To the delight of the children
French whimsy's ambiance and flow

Tea pot is whistling all nine children delight in a spring day
Peach and apricot tea brewed Grace eyes open bright to their smiles
To sweet pastries breakfast table layed in the nook
Wonderful filling my home with warmth, love Merci
grand/'mere for your grace.

Merci  Tussie Mussie  Parfumer
Mary Ann Biddinger

Your literary voice is uniquely yours and delighting LMA, show-casing your love of a slower and more delightful time-period, with (as I see it) Norman Rockwell scenes, laced with unwavering spiritual convictions, and painted visually as lovely poetic vignettes. For those that are reading impaired: (if they use windows) pressing ctrl and rolling the mouse wheel forward will increase the font size. Enjoyed ... richard

I don't remember my French, so it first I thought we were talking my favorite subject–wordplay. However, I see now you are portraying a wealthy grandmother's indulgence on her grandchildren on a given spring day in Victorian times. Delightfully refreshing.

A total delight, Mary Ann, and oozes warmth, character and charm of an idealised bygone world. Have to echo dear John's sentiments and, for me, I am fascinated by that recurrent word "armwar"; is this a colloquialism of the French, armoire? I love such play on words. The grace of your images and sentiments makes me want to gather lavender for bags and use doilies; love, as Amber, says, where this brings me. But please might you use a larger font next time? I'm afraid my eyes found this quite hard to read, sadly. Many thanks, Kate xx
