It has been a busy, exhausting, and hot week over here. I have had almost no time to work on my writing. I spent most of yesterday cleaning and moving things to make room for a new fridge, only to find out that the fridge Best Buy did deliver was defective. So, back it went with the delivery guys and I had to put everything back in our awful old fridge. It was such a nightmare and I've called Best Buy twice about some sort of discount or anything and they won't do it.
Hopefully I can get some writing done soon. I'm thinking about working on a couple new projects, so we'll see what happens. Just wanted to pop in before the kids pop out of their room (nap time is not for napping anymore...) and share a lovely poem I came across today.
We were attempting (notice I say attempting...heh) to read this gorgeous book of poetry illustrated by the amazing Jackie Morris, whose website can be found here: Jackie Morris UK . We managed to read a few poems before I noticed my eldest boy yawning and decided it was time to rest. There was one poem that I had never read before and I thought it was so lovely, especially for us Mamas. ;) Let me share it here:
Three things there are more beautiful
Than any man could wish to see:
The first, it is a full-rigged ship
Sailing with all her sails set free;
The second, when the wind and sun
Are playing in a field of corn;
The third, a woman, young and fair,
Showing her child before it is born.
(Text of poem found here: The Beautiful)
All three images are full of life and the loveliness of nature. After a rough week, this poem made my day. The whole book, which is called The Barefoot Book of Classic Poems, is full of gorgeously illustrated poems, some of which aren't widely known. I'm so excited to delve into this book and get inspired! Let me know what you think and feel free to share! :)
