The brilliant kernel of the night,
The flaming lightroom circles me:
I sit within a blaze of light
Held high above the dusky sea.
Far off the surf doth break and roar
Along bleak miles of moonlit shore,
Where through the tides the tumbling wave
Falls in an avalanche of foam
And drives its churned waters home
Up many an undercliff and cave.

O the green things growing, the green things growing,
The faint sweet smell of the green things growing!
I should like to live, whether I smile or grieve,
Just to watch the happy life of my green things growing.

and once again
the house is filled with music!
I’ve missed this

and everyone is returning home
looking forward to a week of family
there will be suitcases to unpack
laundry to be done
and many dirty dishes left in the sink
but the house will feel like a home
at least for a short time

Had to push myself out the door today. My sluggish body can’t take the heat and humidity anymore and I’m actually starting to look forward to some cool, crisp, fall-like air. I noticed that the acorns are just starting to drop.
