this morning at 4am - I had to wake up, get myself ready and take Sophie to the airport in Sydney. She has gone on a 10 day holiday with her boyfriend and his parents to Airlie Beach & Daydream Is. off the coast of north Queensland..... she is on her Year 12 break at the moment and in October she sits for her Higher School Certificate. I am going to miss her BUT I am SO looking forward to this time alone... just Joe and I. Tomorrow, I am off to have a 3 hour Aboriginal Dreamtime body & soul treatment. I CANNOT wait !!!
I found this poem awhile back - it was for Daisy's poetry fest... so I thought I would share it today :~
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee;
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.
I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.
~by W. B. Yeats~
