For The Day That's In It

Picture by Charles Robinson

"...for Love is wiser than Philosophy, though he is wise, and mightier than Power, though he is mighty. Flame-coloured are his wings, and coloured like flame is his body. His lips are sweet as honey, and his breath is like frankincense.”

A beautiful tale from possibly the most beautiful children’s book ever written: 'The Nightingale and the Rose' from The Happy Prince and Other Tales by Oscar Wilde (1888)
