Whew! That’s done. Managed to repair whatever seemed to be the problem. I still don’t know what was wrong, but never mind….
Found two interesting compilation of poetry in the library yesterday. 1) 101 poems that could save your life and 2) All the poems you need to say goodbye. Both books had some unusual poems that I hadn’t read before and I enjoyed spending time just browsing through them both. Here’s one I especially liked.
Mr.R, this one’s for you. Happy Valentines Day.
Yes, yours, my love, is the right human face.
I in my mind had waited for this long,
Seeing the false and searching for the true,
Then found you as a traveller finds a place
Of welcome suddenly amid the wrong
Valleys and rocks and twisting roads. But you,
What shall I call you? A fountain in a waste,
A well of water in a country dry,
Or anything that’s honest and good, an eye
That makes the whole world seem bright. Your open heart,
Simple with giving, gives the primal deed,
The first good world, the blossom, the blowing seed,
The hearth, the steadfast land, the wandering sea.
Not beautiful or rare in every part.
But like yourself, as they were meant to be.
