Happy Valentines Day!
I can't be with my hubby today.....
'The Confirmation', by Edwin Muir (1887 - 1959)
Yes, yours my love, is the right human face,
I in my mind had waited for this long.
Seeing the false and searching the true,
Then I found you as a traveller finds a place
Of welcome amid the wrong
Valleys and rocks and twisting roads.
But you, what shall I call you?
A fountain in a waste.
A well of water in a country dry.
Or anything that's honest and good, an eye
That makes the whole world bright.
Your open heart simple with giving, give the primal deed.
The first good world, the blossom, the blowing seed.
The hearth, the steadfast land, the wandering sea,
Not beautiful or rare in every part,
But like yourself, as they were meant to be.
On with business.. Darja sent
me 2 of the most exquisite pieces
of crochet from North Yorkshire, UK.
I am not sure what pattern Darja
used for her squares..
The first begins with a aqua centre and
has circles of buttercup yellow and grassy
green before the final round which
is a pinky-purple...
They are made so neatly!
The second square has a yellow centre
and circles of pinky-purple, red and yellow
before the final purple round.
Beautiful work Darja!
