It is such a beautiful day. The sky is as blue as it can be; no clouds break the azure spectacle.
Our flower beds have been treated to a tidying. Just enough to let the tender shoots of our perennials enjoy the warm air.
Deep breaths are not interrupted by the cold of winter weather. It feels GOOD! It always reminds me of William Wordsworth’s poem. It was a favourite of mine at school. That’s a long time ago, but it still evokes memories of good times past.
Picture this if you will……..
I WANDERED lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the milky way, They stretched in never-ending line Along the margin of a bay: 10 Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance. The waves beside them danced; but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: A poet could not but be gay, In such a jocund company: I gazed--and gazed--but little thought What wealth the show to me had brought: For oft, when on my couch I lie In vacant or in pensive mood, 20 They flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils. 1804. William Wordsworth Enjoy the sunshine: the warmth: the fresh, clean air. Be thankful for our freedom. Patricia
