I am still having trouble visiting some blogs that won't let me publish any comments. I'm sorry about this but I don't know what to do about it other than keep researching and hopefully find a resolution to this problem. So, if you don't see me for a while, you'll know why. I will keep visiting though but I won't be able to say hello to many of you unfortunately :( I can however comment on my own blog now because I changed the comment box setting as you've probably noticed. For some reason this allowed me to leave one. Not sure why that works!
The Mocking Fairy
'Won't you look out of your window, Mrs. Gill?' Quoth the Fairy, nidding, nodding in the garden; 'Can't you look out of your window, Mrs. Gill?' Quoth the Fairy, laughing softly in the garden; But the air was still, the cherry boughs were still, And the ivy-tod neath the empty sill, And never from her window looked out Mrs. Gill On the Fairy shrilly mocking in the garden.
'What have they done with you, you poor Mrs. Gill?' Quoth the Fairy brightly glancing in the garden; 'Where have they hidden you, you poor old Mrs. Gill?' Quoth the Fairy dancing lightly in the garden; But night's faint veil now wrapped the hill, Stark 'neath the stars stood the dead-still Mill, And out of her cold cottage never answered Mrs. Gill The Fairy mimbling, mambling in the garden.
