  1. 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
