    CLAD IN RED

    Whenas in red my Julia’s clad,
    Then, then (methinks) she’s wicked bad—
    Like Hester Prynne, but not so sad.

    Next, when I cast mine eyes and see
    Those crimson skirts flow full and free,
    Her sweet seductions taketh me!

  15. I am so happy you gave us some shots of the Royal Albert Hall. It just keep bringing back so many wonderful memories. It is one awesome building...not another like it anywhere. And the inside is magnificent. Your captures are superb. Love them all. genie

  16. Wow! So this is the Royal Albert Hall. Was it here where the Beatles performed for the Queen and many of England's royals? I will never forget what Lennon said after doing one of their songs. . . it was something like, "No need for your applause, just jiggle your jewelries!"

    I love the Beatles til now. I used to sing one of their songs, "A Day In A Life," in which Royal Albert Hall was included, "Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall." It was the beginning of their foray into psychedlics, I think.

    Thanks for bringing back some fond childhood memories. Now you all know how old I am :)

    Cheers!
