Shabby Background

Monday, September 9

The sun is aloft

Two bright stars
peeped into the shell.
"What are they dreaming of?
Who can tell?"

Started a green linnet
Out of the croft;
Wake, little ladies,
The sun is aloft!

~ Minnie and Winnie pp. 46-47 by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. Treasury of Poetry, 2001. (Selected by Alistair Hedley) Albion Press, Oxfordshire.
