It’s late in October but we managed to find enough in the garden to make a pretty bunch of flowers for our visit to Ti this morning.
We always enjoy poetry with Ti. Today’s favourite was one by Charles Causley which was new to us all. It was in the BBC book, More Poetry Please. It’s quite long so I didn’t read it all. It begins:
Mary stood in the kitchen
Baking a loaf of bread.
An angel flew in the window
‘We’ve a job for you,’ he said.
‘God in his big gold heavenSitting in his big blue chair,
Wanted a mother for his little son.
Suddenly saw you there.’
Mary shook and trembled,
‘It isn’t true what you say.’
‘Don’t say that,’ said the angel.
‘The baby’s on its way.’
I’ve started back at my glass work, picking out colours and bits of donated jewels to decorate the Angels with.
