The Little Land


When at home alone I sit
And am very tired of it,
I have just to shut my eyes
To go sailing through the skies....
To go sailing far away
To the pleasant Land of Play;
To the fairyland afar
Where the Little People are;
Where the clover-tops are trees,
And the rain-pool are the seas,
And the leaves, like little ships,
Sail about on tiny trips;
And above the Daisy Tree
Through the grasses,
High o'herhead the Bumble Bee
Hums and passes.

~Robert Louis Stevenson~

A wonderful, sweet poem, and what great pictures to go alongside.
Perfect shot of the bee and flowers.

I like the picture of the bee and flower. I have been meaning to say, too, that I like your header photo of the red-winged blackbird!
