Tread Softly

photogaphy, poetry

He wishes for the cloths of heaven

 Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
 Enwrought with golden and silver light,
 The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
 Of night and light and the half-light,
 I would spread the cloths under your feet:
 But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
 I have spread my dreams under your feet;
 Tread softly, because you tread on my dreams.

I know I am common but I am beautiful too.



We were taking some time out from chores to take the dog and the cameras for a walk on our local nature reserve.  I know there are lots of photographs of Robins in the world. But this is my photograph, and that is what makes it special to me!! What a little sweetie he was. It is always the simple pleasures that delight the heart so much. Mine expands when I am walking in sunshine, hearing the birds, discoursing with the trees.

Take time.





Just couldn’t resist sharing this with you , but to let you into a secret, it’s really a cardboard house. The real Santa survives. Phew!
