Drifting away..... by maggiemae

Drifting away.....

"When at home alone I sit
And am very tired of it,
I have just to shut my eyes
To go sailing through the skies--
To go sailing far away
To the pleasant Land of Play;
To the fairy land afar
Where the Little People are;
Where the clover-tops are trees,
And the rain-pools are the seas,
And the leaves, like little ships,
Sail about on tiny trips;
And above the Daisy tree
Through the grasses,
High o'erhead the Bumble Bee
Hums and passes"
--Robert Louis Stevenson,


Three good things:
1. A dandelion came to a good end.
2. Sun instead of rain but the lawn is still sopped.
3. Oyster festival coming up
Just so sweet, both picture and words. Love it, fav.
