To His Sister
by William Strode
Loving Sister: every line
Of your last letter was so fine
With the best mettle, that the grayne
Of Scrivener's pindust were but vayne:
The touch of Gold did sure instill
Some vertue more than did the Quill.
And since you write noe cleanly hand
Your token bids mee understand
Mine eyes have here a remedy
Wherby to reade more easily.
I doe but jeast: your love alone
Is my interpretation:
My words I will recant, and sweare
I know your hand is wondrous faire.
Electronics: Web Cam
Is a loved one moving away, or indeed, are you moving away? Why not give Ka web cam so you can keep in touch? With high-speed internet connections being available almost anywhere in the world, it is easy enough to keep in touch.
A lovely gift for those about to move away is a home-made movie. Get your family and / or friends together to tape messages of best wishes, shared memories and funny stories. Put on a DVD, this gift has the potential to be the most treasured of all times!
It is also a great holiday gift for those who already live far away: if you can't spend the holidays together, the video will bring you a little closer.
Sweets: Yellow Candy in a Jar
Need a gift for someone who is feeling blue? Help them 'beat the blues' and give a jar of yellow-coloured candy (or in fact, any other yellow items).
Your message could read "Green is the colour of hope, regeneration and strength. I'm giving you a little yellow to turn your blues into a beautiful green!".
Scrapbook with pages from each of my close friends.
Each of my girlfriends put a lot of thought and time into crafting a scrapbook that reflected the history of our friendship. I liked that the gift had a personal touch and didn't cost a lot of money to create. It is something that I will keep forever and makes me smile every time I look at it.
I never buy myself jewelries. It was so great and memorable when my mom and sister found just the right jewelries for my birthday. I love and use them every single day!
The best thing about having a sister was that I always had a friend.
A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.
Sisters is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once the sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship.
Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of. You know whatever you do, they'll still be there.
The mildest, drowsiest sister has been known to turn tiger if her sibling is in trouble.
