Ephemeral



"Nothing that is can pause or stay;
The moon will wax, the moon will wane,
The mist and cloud will turn to rain,
The rain to mist and cloud again..."

                                         Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I should be getting ready for work but I can't start my day anymore without coming here.

You never fail me.

A lovely image, and nicely paired with the poem. I call days like these "druid days"
