Graphic by Billie

God's World
Edna St. Vincent Millay

O world, I cannot hold thee close enough!
Thy winds, thy wide grey skies!
Thy mists that roll and rise!
Thy woods, this autumn day, that ache and sag
And all but cry with colour! That gaunt crag
To crush! To lift the lean of that black bluff!
World, World, I cannot get thee close enough!
Long have I known a glory in it all,
But never knew I this;
Here such a passion is
As stretcheth me apart. Lord, I do fear
Thou'st made the world too beautiful this year.
My soul is all but out of me, let fall
No burning leaf; prithee, let no bird call.

Happy Monday To Amy's Place


This graphic is gorgeous, Billie, and the poetry is, too!
I am off to get some errands run.

I am going backwards with the thread today!

That is such a lovely graphic. Quiet and mysterious but the rightly placed redbirds are perfect. And a perfect poem to go with it. Thank you all for beautiful things.

Afternoon, Amy. Hard to believe it's December already! I don't think it's been a year since last December. :)

I love the poem you chose for today's opening - it's perfect! And so beautiful.
