barefootsong: Silhouette of someone jumping against a sunset sky. (jump)
[personal profile] barefootsong
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

A host of poppies, a flight of swallows;
A flurry of rain, and a wind that follows
Shepherds the leaves in the sheltered hollows
   For the forest is shaken and thinned.

Over my head are the firs for rafter;
The crows blow south, and my heart goes after;
I kiss my hands to the world with laughter—
   Is it Aidenn or mystical Ind?

Oh, the whirl of the fields in the windy weather!
How the barley breaks and blows together!
Oh, glad is the free bird afloat on the heather—
   Oh, the whole world is glad of the wind!

       ~ "An Old Road" by Edwin Markham

About the girl

The random musings of a librarian with a passion for reading (duh), a vast curiosity about the world, and a penchant for noticing things most people don't (like the way sunlight falls through the leaves on a tree).
