Welcome to the 2nd Happy Monday of 2007.
Hope you all had a good week, ready to start the first full week of the New Year. Thanks for taking a look at the website and all of the feedback and emails. They were heartwarming and helpful. After reading the comments, I knew the right words to post this 2nd Happy Monday, excerpted from Jake 4-30-98:
…….Well here is today’s quote, my environmental design teacher said this….” when you look at a tree don’t just look at the branches, look at the sky between them”.
I know some of ya’ll will think that is just plain weird but I think it makes a lot sense if you think about it. Anyway before I write a three page e-mail I am going to give you the poem so you have something else to think about.
To A Friend
I ask but one thing of you, only one,
That always you will be my dream of you;
That never shall I wake to find untrue
All this I have believed and rested on,
Forever vanished, like a vision gone
Out into the night. Alas how few
There are who strike in a us a chord we knew
Existed, but so seldom we heard its tone
We tremble at the half-forgotten sound.
The world is full of rude awakenings
And heaven-born castles shattered to the ground,
Yet still our human longing vainly clings
To a belief in beauty through all the wrongs.
O stay your hand, and leave my heart its songs!
I really enjoyed this poem. Read it once as it is written then read it again following the punctuation. I will send what I think it means tomorrow. Study hard tonight and take care.
