This Is What I Saw
This is what I saw – old snow on the ground,
Three blackbirds preening themselves,
And my neighbor stepping out in her nightdress
To hang her husband’s shirts on the line.
The morning wind made them hard to pin.
It swept the dress so high above her knees,
She had to stop what she was doing
And have a good laugh, while covering herself.
~ Charles Simic
Isn't it good to be able to laugh at yourself? Much better than being embarrassed.
Happy, happy weekend to you and yours.
Sursum corda. Lift up your heart.
I love laundry hanging on the line. This perfect photo was taken by Sarah Huntington.
