This is a lovely way to share with others how the world or words has transformed this other world.

On either side the river lieLong fields of barley and of rye,That clothe the wold and meet the sky;And thro’ the field the road runs by           To many-tower’d Camelot;And up and down the people go,Gazing where the lilies blowRound an island there below,           The island of Shalott.


Lady of Shallot reading should always b this glam

On either side the river lie
Long fields of barley and of rye,
That clothe the wold and meet the sky;
And thro’ the field the road runs by
           To many-tower’d Camelot;
And up and down the people go,
Gazing where the lilies blow
Round an island there below,
           The island of Shalott.

"The fact is that love is like a tree, it grows of its own accord, strikes deep roots throughout our being, and continues to put out leaves on a heart in ruins. And what defies explanation is that the blinder the passion, the more tenacious it is. It is never more solid than when it lacks all reason."—Victor Hugo, The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Nice quote from The Hunchback of Notre Dame (book not Disney movie)
