POEMS ON THE TRAIN

Whoops! This was supposed to be a regular Monday post.

Okay, I'll try to do better.

I discovered today's poem while listening to Book the Thirteenth in A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket, while driving to swimming lessons. I'm quite taken with it.

The Night Has A Thousand Eyes
 By Francis William Bourdillon (b.1852)

 And the day but one;

Yet the light of the bright world dies

 With the dying sun.

 

The mind has a thousand eyes,

 And the heart but one;

Yet the light of a whole life dies

 When love is done.

In closing I'd like to send a shout out to Jennie and Frans De Groot in New Zealand. Thanks for your support and encouragement. And no worries about not leaving comments on the blog, your emails and phone calls serve just fine.
I'd like to quote a recent email from Jennie: 

"How are you and how's everyone? I think of you often, especially when I am finding it difficult to paint, and I just throw some paint at a canvas and get started (JUST DO IT!) as I read in one of your blogs!"

I'm finding it harder and harder to get my blogging done. Revisions are all consuming.
