Blue Mountain

(viewed 1003 times)
A blue mountain
With drifting cloud,
How plainly
You do smile at me;
Let not others see!

Lady Ôtomo of Sakanoue (ca. 695 - 750)

The peace of great hearts be for you,
Valves of the blood of the sun, 20
Pumps of the strongest wants we cry.

The peace of great silhouettes be for you,
Shadow dancers alive in your blood now,
Alive and crying, “Let us out, let us out.”

The peace of great changes be for you. 25
Whisper, Oh beginners in the hills.
Tumble, Oh cubs—to-morrow belongs to you.

The peace of great loves be for you.
Rain, soak these roots; wind, shatter the dry rot.
Bars of sunlight, grips of the earth, hug these.

Carl Sandburg. For You (l. 19-30).

Sunbeam to Shade

(viewed 1319 times)
"I LOVE you, little maid,"
Said the Sunbeam to the Shade,
As all day long she shrank away before him;
But at twilight, ere he died,
She was weeping at his side;
And he felt her tresses softly trailing o'er him.

John. B. Tabb. Child Verse, Poems Grave & Gay. 1899.

On the Road Again

Poor Owen. He's gotten skin infections quarterly this past year and has a new one now. We'll be starting a new diet tomorrow to determine if it's food related as it has been suspected to be environmental only in the past.

When you got no money...

walking's free.

Took my friend to the boardwalk this afternoon. Windy and cold, but we saw a helicopter doing circles right over the surface of the river, training, not rescuing, we hoped, and people walking dogs, and a lot of hungry seagulls. My friend was hungry too.
