No birds! -
I expected more rainy grey again today but our Ohio sky has been bluer than blue. I don't know what the weather was like in the coastal states as Sandy finishes her reign. If there were rain instead of cloudy skies, would it brighten the spirits of those suffering loss? I don't know. I often wonder how sunshine affects those in horrendous situations. I would hope that sunshine would help but I just don't know....
My thoughts are with those poor souls effected by Sandy and my prayers continue heavenward in their behalf.
The poem above is the last stanza of a poem by Thomas Hood. It speaks of the greyest of grey days and since today wasn't I couldn't post all of it above. But here it is:
No sun - no moon!
No morn - no noon -
No dawn - no dusk - no proper time of day.
No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member -
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds! -
Blessings to you!
