Lemurian City of Ladies

A Lemurian City Built in Memory of Christine de Pizan

Time Spent with the Dame

with 9 comments

Seasons come and seasons go,

Nature’s song,

wheeling cosmically,


time spent with the Dame

washes a lot,

(with her humming song),

of the past away.

To greet Imogen and Orlando,


free of travel disarray and dirt,

to occupy new places,

is surprising –

to say the least.

  1. Divine! I just love the thought of Imogen and Orlando being freed of travel disarray and dirt and occupying new places.

  6. I think the spa of Lemuria is not for pampering so much as for getting a fresh start.
