I grow old … I grow old …
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?
I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

I do not think they will sing to me.Mermaid

      Rivers, too. I watch the Hudson and Mississippi and the flow is timeless. Soothing.
      The poetry applies to a Man (Master), but to me – too.

    I follow dievca’s blog. This lady posts some interesting articles that usually focus on fashion and the “fancier” items that are or can be associated with the D/s lifestyle. Enjoy
