I revisited this shot whilst doing a video of Keats' "Ode to a Nightingale" -

He has a phrase which incorporates the text "O for a draught of vintage...........and Provencal Song ................. a beaker full of the warm South..... etc" --- this just seemed to fit Oh so well - and that's why it's here.

It's a majestic soulful poem about the Prince of songbirds - the Nightingale - perhaps not a Prince in appearance - but what a joyful melody it puts out ...

Love/Die For This - I love the poem to death! I love the poem to Life!

This works as a shot - but do check it out in it's context ... you will I hope be so glad you did - if only for those two master's Keats and the Nightingale! ...outdoing each other - both are earths species singing in their own way for eternity - Fanciful ?? .... well .. judge for yourself.

I've spent a week getting it together and if truth be told am virtually drained by the joy & emotion that the pair of then engendered in me Smile

On the perhaps more prosaic level there were three telephone line running mid tree to the right- cloned 'em out - they're always there aren't they? Smile

An excellent piece of cloning work here. Provence at its best.
