Come away, oh human child / To the waters and the wild

photo taken August 2009 • title thanks to Karen

one year ago: Easy Summer Afternoon
two years ago: Still Life With Bone

Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.

I’ve mentioned it before and must say it again today ~ quote Yeats, and you’ve got me; he speaks to my every cell.  And the full “chorus” from the poem quoted by Karen… well, I’ve copied it above; they were perfect words for my yesterday.

Also perfect for my yesterday: getting to read all the entries and poems (go read them in the comment section!) left by all of you.
They were Lovely, Dark and Deep; proving that we all See A World In A Grain Of Sand when we decide to; that freedom is knowing that Time goes one way – I go another; and that sometimes, even a handsome coyote is subject to Pillow Pelt In The Morning.

• • • This photograph is a bit more somber than the usual caption photos ~ we know the punners are at the top of their game, this week is for the poets.

Please leave your title, caption, or Charlie-commentary in the comment section of this post and you will instantly be in the running for a signed copy of my book, now in paperback! Woo me with your words.

    Looking back to see
    What I could see,
    O’er my shoulder I stole a glance.

    And it seemed to me
    What I could see
    Was all that I had, past.

    I gave a thought to that behind
    And all I had amassed.

    I pondered over in my mind
    And settled on at last:

    That what I have is not so much –
    If what you’re counting on is touch.

    But my friends will remain,
    And our love will sustain,
    And what we have is past.

    And so I turn forward,
    As I go homeward
    Into a beloved’s arms’ clasp.

    I think your tweet says it all.”Charlie looks so shocked,baffled.I might even say offended,when he realizes I’ve tricked him. I know,Coyote,that’s “your job” right?” I would love to know the actual context of your wonderfully sensitive picture.You never fail to capture emotion that always leaves me with questions & wanting more.

    Companionship
    We walked the road less traveled
    It lies now far behind,
    ‘Though the road ahead winds farther
    I do not think I mind,
    For her heart I’m closely guarding
    The same as she guards mine,
    And we walk this path together
    With both our hearts entwined.

    Dear Shreve,
    I am the national Library Examiner for Examiner.com. I write articles that are more like reviews than essays, but for lack of a better verb, I’ll say that I’m going to “review” your book before the end of the month. While at Tattered Cover in Colorado, I selected it as a gift for my daughter who spent a week working in Ten Sleep this past summer. I also chose it because of the warmth and beauty of the photos and the clarity of your writing. Please give Charlie some tummy scratches for me.

  260. Alicia Says:

    Oops, I meant to say that my articles are more like essays than reviews. But it’s late at night, and it’s been a long day.

    Here is a quote that I deeply love and which I always consider during tough times. It was written by a wise person named Patrick Miles Overton and is titled “Faith.” Overton says, “When we walk to the edge of all the light we have and take that step into the darkness of the unknown, we must believe that one of two things will happen: There will be something solid for us to stand on. Or, we will be taught how to fly.”
