My Home (Ella Wheeler Wilcox)
This is the place that I love the best,
A little brown house, like a ground-bird’s nest,
Hid among grasses, and vines, and trees,
Summer retreat of the birds and bees.
The tenderest light that ever was seen
Sifts through the vine-made window screen–
Sifts and quivers, and flits and falls
On home-made carpets and gray-hung walls.
All through June the west wind free
The breath of clover brings to me.
All through the languid July day
I catch the scent of new-mown hay.
Except for the rug from junk which is available as a gacha prize at this month’s Arcade, nothing in this picture is new release. It’s like summoning old friends for a lazy morning of relaxation.
Something I badly need this week.
Hoping your week will be smooth sailing! ❤
