There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

    I don't have Netflix and I don't intend to have one either.
    However I have to admit that I'm addicted to watching TV.
    At this moment I have been watching TV for more than five hours, minus one hour when I was joining Natasha's AM/PM session of course. :)

    Will sites like Netlix replace TV in the future?
    For me, myself, I'm almost sure that it won't be the case.
    TV has different programmes like News, Live broadcast, Breaking News, Sport, Films, TV series etc while Netflix has only shows, series and films? Or am I wrong?
    No, I love my TV (eventhough I don't have an 8K screen) with its more than 20 channels and the various programmes they broadcast.
    They are enough to entertain me everyday and to keep me up to date about what happens in the world.
