Eternal motion



Musing:
From By the Sea by William Wordsworth
"It is a beauteous evening, calm and free;
The holy time is quiet as a nun
Breathless with adoration; the broad sun
Is sinking down in its tranquillity;
The gentleness of heaven is on the sea:
Listen! the mighty Being is awake,
And doth with his eternal motion make
A sound like thunder -everlastingly."

  1. Nice photo. Very well captured.

    To answer your question the reservoir and small dam was constructed in 1969 to prevent flooding down stream. It created a pond for wild life.

  2. You are leading me on to re-reading poets whom I have not read in a while: dismissing them as mere metaphysicals.

    The image so complements the text - or is it the other way. I tend to think Peter might be on to something: comfort and facility.

  3. That labels Metaphysical etc. don't mean a lot to me. Basically I like Wordsworth because he writes about nature and does a great job of capturing the emotion we so often feel in that setting.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

Musing:
The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
