Swifts, a Poem for Our Times

18 Jul

A good friend sent me this poem by Kim Ridgeon which I found very apt for our ‘troubled times’ and very moving. 

We must have hope in the darkness, must love and live and above all, be kind to those we know and to those strangers whom we pass in the street and those whom we meet. Think about the Swifts.  Thank you Kim for this. 

We went to a beautiful and life affirming wedding yesterday and will post some photos when I have solved how to get the photos out of my camera! I didn’t have a memory card and recorded direct to the camera……

    Beautiful poem!!! I was listening to this while I read it…yeah I’m a mess! My friend on Misifusa’s blog shared the Prayer of St Francis and I found Susan Boyle singing it and thought you could appreciate it too…. – Susan Boyle singing prayer of St. Francis.

    Your beautiful post inspired me this morning to sit out in the winter sunshine with my cup of coffee and watch the magpies strolling around our back garden. They’re such funny birds, they strut around, pecking for insects, then all of a sudden they’ll burst into a glorious warble. And off they’ll strut again. It’s so good to be reminded that these things are to be cherished. Thank-you for your daily reminders of beautiful things!
