Viennese Escapes

A Murmur in the Trees -- to note --
Not loud enough -- for Wind --
A Star -- not far enough to seek --
Nor near enough -- to find --

A long -- long Yellow -- on the Lawn --
A Hubbub -- as of feet --
Not audible -- as Ours -- to Us --
But dapperer -- More Sweet --

A Hurrying Home of little Men
To Houses unperceived --
All this -- and more -- if I should tell --
Would never be believed --

Of Robins in the Trundle bed
How many I espy
Whose Nightgowns could not hide the Wings --
Although I heard them try --
Emily Dickinson

Viennese Escapes: Burgenland
Photographed in
Late October 2009
Neusiedler See - Seewinkel National Park

Clicking -> Burgenland
will take you to more images
of this enchanted place!


While selecting the pictures
for today's post I was listening to
Lucia Popp singing "Laudate Dominum":
Laudate Dominum omnes gentes,
Laudate eum omnes populi"
"Praise the Lord all you nations,
praise him all you peoples
(Psalm 117)

  1. this post felt like a sweet lullaby... so soothing!

  2. Thank you!
    I love that part of the country,
    I go there to recharge, a few hours and I feel like reborn.

  3. It looks like you're in Arizona...
    Not that I;ve ever been to Arizona...

  4. I know that it's the horses ear, but that white horse looks like a unicorn from that angle.

  5. That last photo took my breath - so utterly peaceful. I would return there too.

  6. I adore the palette of this photos!

  7. Enchanted indeed! And I too love the soft blue-grays and muted yellows. What a lovely suite of photos!

  8. Oh what a wonderful post! Great shot of stratocumulus clouds (among other things!)in the top picture.

    I wonder if the wells are still functional?

  9. Oh wow! That pic with the horse blows me away. I could daydream my way into that pic.

  11. There is something so magical about a white horse.
