Clouds gather, treetops toss and sway;
But pour us wine, an old one!
That we may turn this dreary day
To golden, yes, to golden!

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss'd cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core...

(-John Keats, 1795-1821, from "To Autumn")

And the Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the spirit of love felt everywhere
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
Rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.

"The grate had been removed from the wide overwhelming fireplace, to make way for a fire of wood, in the midst of which was an enormous log glowing and blazing, and sending forth a vast volume of light and heat; this I understood was the Yule-log, which the Squire was particular in having brought in and illumined on a Christmas eve, according to ancient custom."

"The days are warm yet cold, clear yet hazy; the world lives but dies. And the Sun, pretending that it's not losing its grip, that none of this is happening, pours down more and more light that's all the while thinner and thinner. By All Hallow's Eve there's just nothing left of reason or fatness or gold -- there's nothing but dark music -- and the trees gasp naked and frail into November."

Midnight Muse Newsletter ~ 16 July 2005

The face of the warm bright world is the face of a flower,
The word of the wind and the leaves that the light winds fan
As the word that quickened at first into flame, and ran,
Creative and subtle and fierce with invasive power,
Through darkness and cloud, from the breath of the one God, Pan.
(Algernon Charles Swinburne, 1837-1909)

2) To thank you for your patronage, we have created a Frequent Shopper program! A filled frequent shopper card entitles you to a $15 gift certificate to Midnight Muse. We also plan to have special offers and gifts for our frequent shoppers (e.g., free tickets to our Winter Solstice raffle in December...)

3) JEWELRY SALE! ~ Now through July 23, our Swarovski crystal jewelry is 30% off! In addition to the sparkling crystals in several colors, the jewelry features fairies, dragonflies, butterflies, and delicate Victorian styles. (The sale is in-store only.)

4) Are you in or near Ohio, and a lover of all things Celtic? Two upcoming events should delight you: the Dayton Celtic Festival at the end of July, and the Dublin Irish Festival (near Columbus) in early August! Music, dancing, shopping, food, and cultural exhibits are featured at both these events. Stop by our booth and say hello! See below for more information.
