There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.
Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.
Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.
November by Walter de la Mare
As much a pick your brain as a discussion, I am curious what you do to discourage mosquitoes from feeding off your blood!
Unfortunately they are the most cosmopolitan of insects, living everywhere except Antarctica! (Apparently Iceland is relatively free of them, though I'm not sure I want to live here).
So what do you do to deter these irritating bugs? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosquito
