Periwinkle, Heather and A Poem

A few moments in the front garden collecting photos – a Periwinkle and some white Winter Heather which, in its out-of-focus beauty minds me of a wedding dress.

White Tree Heather

Purple Periwinkle

And, today, a winter poem that looks towards hope for you:

Winter Stars – Sara Teasdale

I went out at night alone;
 The young blood flowing beyond the sea
Seemed to have drenched my spirit’s wings—
 I bore my sorrow heavily.
But when I lifted up my head
 From shadows shaken on the snow,
I saw Orion in the east
 Burn steadily as long ago.
From windows in my father’s house,
 Dreaming my dreams on winter nights,
I watched Orion as a girl
 Above another city’s lights.
Years go, dreams go, and youth goes too,
 The world’s heart breaks beneath its wars,
All things are changed, save in the east
 The faithful beauty of the stars.
