Candid Reflections

I need a hammock.

Can you think of an atmosphere more peaceful than right smack-dab in the middle of nature on a sunny, warm afternoon?  Our family enjoyed a pic-nick at the park for Mother’s Day and I spotted my niece Hailey enjoying this little nook in a big stump.  Doesn’t she look like a little chipmunk in there!


William H. Davies

      What is this life if, full of care,
      We have no time to stand and stare?

      No time to stand beneath the boughs
      And stare as long as sheep or cows.

      No time to see, when woods we pass,
      Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

      No time to see, in broad daylight,
      Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

      No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
      And watch her feet, how they can dance.

      No time to wait till her mouth can
      Enrich that smile her eyes began.

      A poor life this if, full of care,
      We have no time to stand and stare.

  3. And yes, the schol year is nearly over…we’ll have the time to sit and relax and soak up all the beauty that surrounds us. Isn’t wonderful that “summer break” is actually in summer and not winter!? So much more “scope for the imagination” as Anne Shirley would say.
