“Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end; then stop.” ~Lewis Carroll
Dry brittle corn stalks
Shooting up out of the snow
Enticing the birds.
A red cardinal
Searching for much needed food
Lights atop a stalk.
A hungry brown thrush
Feverishly pecks away
At a frozen cob.
An alert sparrow
Spies a kernel on the ground
Lunch for one is served.
“Four leaf clovers aren’t rare … People who look for them are.” ~Christy Jordan
“… Your patience may have long to wait,
Whether in little things or great,
But all good luck, you soon will learn,
Must come to those who nobly earn.
Who hunts the hayfield over
Will find the four-leaved clover! …”
~Sarah Orne Jewett
“When walking, you see things that you miss in a motor car or on the train. You give your mind space to ponder.” ~Tom Hodgkinson
“Nobody can be as agreeable as an uninvited guest.” ~Kin Hubbard
“Time is a dressmaker specializing in alterations.” ~Faith Baldwin
