Spring

Wyoming Sky

A quote, shared by my mother in a comment (thank you, Mom!), for those in the deep of winter. Go outside. Even in winter. Mother is waiting to embrace you.

I said in my heart, “I am sick of four walls and a
ceiling.
I have need of the sky.
I have business with the grass.
I will up and get me away where the hawk is wheeling,
Lone and high,
And the slow clouds go by.
I will get me away to the waters that glass
The clouds as they pass,
To the waters that lie
Like the heart of a maiden aware of a doom drawing
nigh
And dumb for sorcery of impending joy.
I will get me away to the woods.

–Richard Hovey, excerpt from Spring

    So happy you did receive this … I lost it after printing on your blog (I thought!) It has been my mantra of winter for many years <3

    For some reason my blog isn’t sending me notifications when people comment and doesn’t indicate that someone has left a comment. So I hadn’t been checking. But I will check more (and see if Hub can figure out what’s going on).
