Dew

DEW, n. A terrestrial perspiration or night sweat invented to nourish the tender huckleberry and the yearning poet. Slightly dashed with goat's milk and whiskey, it is an article much affected by Hibernian temperance lecturers, who are sometimes affected by it, in turn.

2008 Update: The night's remorse for what it sees. Midwest farmers consider the absence of dew in the morning to be a sign of coming rain, evidence either of nature's disapproval for redundancy or of the agrarian's faith in benevolent weather.

Happy birthday to my blogtwin.

"Teardrops Will Kiss The Morning Dew"

When time was young we walked the roads together
When love was sweet I meant the world to you
Now comes the sun we'll say goodbye forever
And teardrops will kiss the morning dew

Take me and make me your lover one more time
Close in your arms as before
'Til o'er your shoulder the early morning shines
Then I'll leave you and grieve you no more

When time was young we walked the roads together
When love was sweet I meant the world to you
Now comes the sun we'll say goodbye forever
And teardrops will kiss the morning dew

Daises need sunshine and roses need rain
So it was all meant to be
A wild bird needs wings, free to take to the wind
And so it was meant for you and me

When time was young we walked the roads together
When love was sweet I meant the world to you
Now comes the sun we'll say goodbye forever
And teardrops will kiss the morning dew

Teardrops will kiss the morning dew

I think it rains every night here; when I go out in the morning, the grass is wet.

DEW, n. Adulterated water, made hard by fermentation, distillation, or aggressive marketing. DEWDROP: Marketing ploy for hoteliers in the deep country, to which they have been exiled.

Humidity hovering and hewing haughtily on hemp and herbs.

OH! HOW COULD I FORGET TO SAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY GIRL?!!

Dew is what Keith drinks by the gallon.
If ever he's hospitalized, I'll have to make sure he gets it intravenously.

Do the Dew!!

Mutha said...

Makes me think of Mountain Dew -- that diabolical drink.

Also, the Philadelphia fans who woke up with dew on their drunken faces this morning. God bless 'em.

(It wasn't easy to work the world series in -- but I did it!)

Dew, what the soft body of night leaves behind.

Dew: The drops of mist which enhance the spider's web in the morning sunlight.

Now that I'm a grown up and no longer wait in school yards for the bell to ring me in, I don't notice dew, so much. It used to annoy me, the way the dew made all the playground equipment seem inhospitable.

Doug said...

Shayna, great to hear from you. Hope you and yours are well as well.

Dewly noted, sis.

Icy, some days the rain falls down, some days it starts there. Like men over 40.

Amoeba, only because there's nowhere further to put them.

Happily, TLP.

JD, previous generations of pastors used moonshine.

Well done, Mutha. For me it was impossible this year.

Ariel, the hard body of night leaves tears.

Terry, I wonder if a spider feels the same.

Bear, next time plant marigolds.

Actonbell, it annoyed me, too, because people laughed at the wet spots on my clothes.

Tears on the morning grass or microwaved frost.

how many men have copied dew
For buttons, how many women have covered themselves
With dew, dew dresses, stones and chains of dew, heads
Of the floweriest flowers dewed with the dewiest dew.
One grows to hate these things except on the dump.
