♥ Happy Valentine, my friends! ♥

Man sollte alle Tage wenigstens ein kleines Lied hören, 
ein gutes Gedicht lesen, 
ein treffliches Gemälde sehen 
und, wenn es möglich zu machen wäre, 
ein vernünftiges Wort sprechen.
-JW v. Goethe

One should at least all day  hear a small ayre, 
read a good poem,
watch a splendid painting
and if possible;
speak a word of sense.
-Johann Wolfgang v. Goethe 

It's raining cats and dogs in today almost dark and grey germany.

On the other side: 

the living room here at Commoneos is full of girls and lightened bright in flashing valentine-pink.

You know pink is able to harm innocent boys!

So I stick to Goethe. 

Sitting here with a good book, some lovely aquarelle and am talking to you.
 If you just sing a ditty for me, it would feel like nirvana...

Happy Valentine!


  1. Your you a sweet song sung by Valentine

    " My love is like a red red rose
    That's newly sprung in June
    Oh my love is like a melody
    That's sweetly played in tune.....
    " As fair art thou my Bonnie lass
    So deep in love am I
    And I will love thee still, my dear
    Till all the seas run dry.. "

  2. I should add the poem is by Robbie Burns

  3. Awww!
    Thanks so much, Dee!

    Always your

  4. Happy St Valentine's Day to all living at The Sasha Commoneo's.

    Here in the UK is is a cold but beautifully sunny day and
    ' Love is in the air, everywhere I look around.....'

  5. Happy Valentine's Day to all of you there in rainy Germany, from us here in equally rainy Spain!!
    I think the sun has done a runner this week.
    Love the photo, and all the artwork around the room.

  6. Belated happy Valentine's Day.
    Such a cosy scene.
    I'd not heard your poem before but hoping to 'speak a word of sense' - seems a good wish in any language!
