Wordsworth’s Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood consists of 204 lines and eleven stanzas. The readers are invited into Wordsworth’s belief that life on earth is a dim and shadow of an earlier, purer existence, dimly recalled in childhood and then is forgotten in the process of growing up.
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star, (59-60)
Human life is merely “a sleep and forgetting” that human beings dwell in a purer, more glorious realm before they enter the earth. At our birth, human carries the soul of heaven that becomes the light in human life.
For a brief moment, children are just like a white paper which is still pure. The children enjoy ‘the light of heaven’, whatever they do, and it makes them happy. They have no sadness, what they feel is only the happiness which filled their minds. They see the meadowland, grove, stream ‘apparalled in celestial light’ and feel the world alive with all the freshness of a dream. Everything has made them happy.
THERE was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,
The earth, and every common sight,
To me did seem
Apparelled in celestial light,
The glory and the freshness of a dream (1-5)
aha-ha-ha-aha-ha-ha-hahaha- This laughing style sounds familiar in cartoon world. Yeah, the laughing of the woody bird named Woody Woodpecker. The first time I saw this cartoon film, I found the new sense of the cartoon characters, the trouble maker and funny woody-bird. Getting curious with this bird, I try to look for some information. And I found that the woody-bird was created in 1940 (its older than me, huh :D). The creator of the cartoon is Walter Lantz.
Woody was one of the most popular icons of the 1940s, and even got a song created for him, entitled (what else?), The Woody Woodpecker Song. It was recorded by Kay Kyser, and sung by Gloria Wood and Harry Babbit, in 1948. The song was a smash hit in June, 1948 (selling over 250,00 records within ten days of release). To help cash in on the popular tune, Lantz had the song rushed into his latest picture, Wet Blanket Policy, with Wood and Babbit supplying vocals. The cartoon has the honor of being the only one ever to be nominated for an Oscar for Best Song.
I miss woody woodpecker show time on tv now…
Which one I choose? The CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) or the GSM (Global System for Mobile) cards? I need them both actually. I choose starone from Indosat as my CDMA partner while Simpati (Telkomsel) and IM3 (Indosat) as my GSM. Getting confused with these three cards? Absolutely yes for now. Previously, Indosat became the cheapest provider (as I know) with its starone for Internet connection. I’ve already used it for 3 years, and there is no problems at all. But now, Telkomsel offers its new program called T-sel Flash, the additional service of HALO for data access. It’s cheaper than the starone cost. Should I upgrade my Simpati to HALO for it? 2 months left I had ignored my Simpati because I’ve turned to IM3 since my credit reload business has started. And now, I have to choose among the three of them; Starone, Simpati or IM3. Would you mind to choose it one for me? 😀
