Tiny Tomato, Bella Ciao and Tread Softly

We have some cherry tomato plants in a hanging basket and today I noticed a couple of tiny tomatoes!

I have just come home from singing with The Inglehearts and the lovely Mr S greeted me with, “You look happy!” and of course I am – I have just been singing and we finished with the rousing Bella Ciao. Click here for a version for you to listen to.

Driving home I heard one of my all time favourite poems, The Cloths of Heaven by W B Yeats, being read on BBC Radio 4.


Had I the heaven’s embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light;
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

W. B. Yeats

What a beautiful way to round off the day!
