"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

I still prefer Voltaire to Balzac (even if he doesn't write) and I am only a false aristocrat in Second Life. Here is the story of the genuine aristocrat ;) , @Lynne, @Bubbly, @april :

    interesting story. why her Marriage to Hański is highlighted so much here?

    BTW, I am a very stable genius but not a genuine aristocrat. LOL @Xanthippe

    @Bubbly, I have the impression that there is much more information about Balzac in this entry. Well...

    He he, she was Polish, this is the thing. French-Polish relations have been always difficult. :D
