  • The bise is a northern wind, cold and generally dry, that blows from the north-east of France to the south of the Massif Central, where it is called bise noire ("black bise").

    Blowing year-round, the bise is usually accompanied by clear blue skies. However, it can sometimes bring heavy black clouds, storms and hail in autumn and winter.

    In colloquial French, the word "bise" also means a light kiss, usually given to a friend in greeting or before parting.

  • Other nations are before us
    With their Sputniks and Explorers
    What can confidence restore us?
    Naught but tiddlywinks.
    On the fields of Eton,
    Former foes were beaten.
    But today all patriots play
    This sport which needs such grit and concentration.
    Through this game of skill and power
    England knows her finest hour,
    And her stronghold, shield and tower
    Must be tiddlywinks.

  • QUINQUIREME of Nineveh from distant Ophir,
    Rowing home to haven in sunny Palestine,
    With a cargo of ivory,

    Sandalwood, cedarwood, and sweet white wine.

    -John Masefield (Cargoes)
