photo taken August 2009 • title thanks to Karen
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.
