Some, too fragile for winter winds
The thoughtful grave encloses—
Tenderly tucking them in from frost
Before their feet are cold.

Never the treasures in her nest
The cautious grave exposes,
Building where schoolboy dare not look,
And sportsman is not bold.

This covert have all the children
Early aged, and often cold,
Sparrow, unnoticed by the Father—
Lambs for whom time had not a fold.

Emily Dickinson

10-22-14 Something’s Coming

Refraction

When winter first begins to bite
and stones crack in the frosty night,
when pools are black and trees are bare,
’tis evil in the Wild to fare.

J.R.R. Tolkien

10-18-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Re-Refraction

The Challenge is here.

Yesterday’s attempt.

I once again borrow Melanie Neilson‘s words to express a feeling:

Verse 8 of

“Bird Coming Through A Super Doorway: The Doris Touch”

Now see what good turns mirrors for reflection have done:
Delights to peep, gaze therein on screwball heroines, screwball heroes
In cave, temple, destroyed boudoir, where-through the sun, endlessly
True and false, light and sound are found. Loving form,
Doris fulfills her intention to make poetry vital in her time
Fierce faith therein, multiple readings do show her art evergreen.
