Photos, Texts and A Poem

19 Jun

Our Littlest Live-wire is with her other Grandparents for a  week and these photos came our way tonight – very cheery and good for the soul.

Water heaven in the Mussel Brook. —  in Sheepwash.

My beloved brother and my bestest Sister-in-law have travelled to Cornwall today and we will see them tomorrow. Exchanging texts all day has been restorative too.

And a lovely poem for you, Hope is the Thing by Emily Dickinson

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –
And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –
I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.

      Oh she is! And today she is back for a Father’s Day breakfast tomorrow and then off again. She lifts all our spirits. Thank you for calling in. I am a bit remiss at the moment. Sorry.
