An Elastic Band, A Poem and A Country Lane

29 Mar

Walking back from a lovely singing session with The Suitcases Singers, I spotted a heart on the pavement. I sometimes think passers-by must think I am crazy, taking the oddest of photos!

Heart from an elastic band

Spring seems to be arriving as the softness of light has today replaced the winter grey

Early Spring  by Rainer Maria Rilke

Harshness vanished. A sudden softness
has replaced the meadows’ wintry grey.
Little rivulets of water changed
their singing accents. Tendernesses,

hesitantly, reach toward the earth
from space, and country lanes are showing
these unexpected subtle risings
that find expression in the empty trees.

And a Cornish lane for you, albeit with some winter grey about it. I’ll find a sunny one as soon as I can!

A lane on my way home
