In a neighbour’s garden we saw more signs of Spring, Hellebores, delicate and lovely.
I discovered another poem that appealed to me today – the last two lines sum up the way I ‘look about me and about me without end’ finding the beautiful things that are all around us.
THE WORLD’S A MINEFIELD
—Iain Crichton Smith
The world’s a minefield when I think of you.
I must walk carefully in case I touch
some irretrievable and secret switch
that blows the old world back into the new.
How careless I once was about this ground
with the negligence of ignorance. Now I take
the smallest delicate steps and now I look
about me and about me without end.
You may remember that I sent some SallyBoots to Germany a couple of weeks ago for our new Grand Niece. Today we received a photo of her looking lovely in her new boots.
