Away, away ...


George Sand and Chopin
Eugène Delacroix 1798-1863

GEORGE SAND
What time the gifted lady took
Away from paper, pen and book,
She spent in amorous dalliance
(They do those things so well in France).

Dorothy Parker

Not France but Norway and Tuscany. Bye friends, have to be away, away!
