“It is the memory that enables a person to gather roses in January” (Anon.)
Édouard-Victoire-Antoine Lalo (27 January 1823 – 22 April 1892) was a French composer. His music has a distinctive style, with strong melodies and colourful orchestration. His Symphonie espagnole is a popular work in the standard repertoire
In 1962, composer Maurice Jarre used a theme from Lalo's Piano Concerto for the exotic score to Lawrence of Arabia.
Laugh... and the world laughs with you....
In January everything freezes.
We have two children. Both are she'ses.
This is our January rule:
One girl in bed, and one in school.
In February the blizzard whirls.
We own a pair of little girls.
Blessings upon of each the head ----
The one in school and the one in bed.
March is the month of cringe and bluster.
Each of our children has a sister.
They cling together like Hansel and Gretel,
With their noses glued to the benzoin kettle.
April is made of impetuous waters
And doctors looking down throats of daughters.
If we had a son too, and a thoroughbred,
We'd have a horse,
And a boy,
And two girls
