Fine China?

Friko has a wonderful porcelain plate hiding in her photo on her blog, Friko's World . I've just found it! And it looks like this...

What a clever designer she is! Now all I hope is, that she will forgive my cheek for letting you see it too. :-)

Poor Tyler !

Look what I found in my mailbox on Sunday evening:

Tyler sent me the following:

Hi I'm a 21 year old male from California, and I'm only attracted to older women. I've never had sex with an older women, and I would like to. I don't know where to look, and I'm desperate. I'm on the shy side so meeting at bars aren't really my thing. I feel like i'm a pretty good looking guy, but i still have confidence problems. Do u have any advice on what I can do? By the way I think you're VERY cute. 
Casey from California, USA.

Sent from my iPhone

Poor boy. It would be such fun if hundreds of women/men replied to Casey/Tyler and gave him some advice. If only we could be bothered. Pity really, it would serve him right.

A poetry question

In James Taylor's song, "Gaia," he uses a phrase that I thought he had borrowed from Keats, but now I can't find any attribution other than to Mr. Taylor. The full song's lyrics are here.

Here's the story. A few years ago I assembled photographs on snapfish.com to have calendars made up, and went in search of quotations to use as captions. I found "the petal sky and the rosy dawn," a quote that I recall as having been attributed to Keats, and used it as a caption for one of my [many] sky pictures. This morning I thought to go looking for the rest of the poem and I can find no "petal sky/rosy dawn" other than in "Gaia."

I'm sure that there is some one among the readers and writers here who can help me with this Sunday morning wonder question.
