scented velvet…

Kissed by the sunshine

the sweetly scented velvet

petals of Love bloom

Don’t you wonder?

“The barn standing so simple, embraced with time past, an old dwelling full of memories that forever last.   Rain dripping down the eaves, rabbits burrowing underneath the leaves.   Walking with my mind back to days untold, a path in which my father tread until he was very old.”  Lorraine E. Watson, Ode to the Old Barn

The Wishing Gate….

‘The Worldling, pining to be freed
From turmoil, who would turn or speed
The current of his fate,
Might stop before this favored scene,
At Nature’s call, nor blush to lean
Upon the Wishing-gate.’

William Wordsworth

Heart’s desire…

“Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.”

W.B. Yeats, The Land of Heart’s Desire

The Shed’s Shelf

“The cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow, for children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow. So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep….for babies don’t keep”

Ruth Hamilton, 1958

When?

leaning tree-river-SwittersB-photography-Oregon

‘Uprooted and disheveled, there
The monarch of the forest lay;
As if in desolate despair
Its last resistance fell away,
And overwhelmed, in evil hour
Went down before the tempest’s power.

Such are the final works of fate;
The birds to other branches flew;
And man, whatever his estate,
Must face that same mutation, too!’

Alfred Castner King, Fallen Tree

Cut Ash

But ash new or ash old,
Is fit for a queen with crown of gold
But ash green or ash brown
Is fit for a queen with golden crown
But ash wet or ash dry
a king shall warm his slippers by.

Celia Congreve, The Firewood Poem, 1930
