Quiet Days

Well, Garry wasn't able to do the drywall, so my store room is still topsy turvy. Trying to find enough hours in a day is hard for everyone.

I realized I haven't posted any pictures of my new cats. As it is, I only have one of Snowy - Yoda is still camera shy and I haven't been able to get anything but an out of focus tail so far!

This is by Longfellow.
An old man in a lodge within a park;
The chamber walls depicted all around
With portraitures of huntsman, hawk, and hound,
And the hurt deer. He listeneth to the lark,
Whose song comes with the sunshine through the dark
Of painted glass in leaden lattice bound;
He listeneth and he laugheth at the sound,
Then writeth in a book like any clerk.
He is the poet of the dawn, who wrote
The Canterbury Tales and his old age
Made beautiful with song; and as I read
I hear the crowing cock, I hear the note
Of lark and linnet, and from every page
Rise odors of ploughed field or flowery mead.
