Duck Friday


  1. When I saw the pic, Caz, this beautiful poem popped into my head.

    It's one of my favourites. I was about 16 when I first read it.

    Ah Sunflower.

    Ah Sunflower, weary of time,
    Who countest the steps of the sun;
    Seeking after that sweet golden clime
    Where the traveller's journey is done;

    Where the Youth pined away with desire,
    And the pale virgin shrouded in snow,
    Arise from their graves, and aspire
    Where my Sunflower wishes to go!

  2. Oops, meant to add, the author's name.

    William Blake (one of the romantic poets)
