Quest by Eliz. Rooney “Leap tall hedges That enclose your mind And ride your winged dreams Into the far, far reaches of the sky. Leave far behind The small things you were sure of. Go and find The ‘things in heaven and earth’ Which this old world Has not imagined yet. Go And do not forget To bring back moons and miracles So we who stay at home Can also start to see. Thanks Charlie for letting us see a bit of what you see along the way. Safe travels, Aunt Mary Comments are closed.
