~Field of Wonder~

 
A Sweet Pretty Girl ...
A Garden View... Butterflies..
Antique Lace and Mother of Pearl Buttons.
Some of my Most Favorite Things.
~Field Of Wonder~
What could be more wonderful
Than the place where I walk sometimes?
Swaying like trees in rain . . .
Swaying like trees in sunshine
When breezes stir nothing but happiness . . .
What could be more lovely?
I walk in the Field of Wonder
Where colors come to be;
I stare at the sky . . .
I feel myself lifting on the wind
As the swallows lift and blow upward . . .
I see colors fade out, they die away . . .
I blow across a cloud . . . I am lifted . . .
How can I change again into a little girl
When wings are in my feeling of gladness?
This is strange to know
On a summer day at noon,
This is a wild new joy
When summer is over.
The scarlet of three maple trees
Will guide me home,
Oh mother my dear!
Fear nothing: I will come home
Before snow falls!
~*Hilda Conkling*~

Jill,
HOW BEAUTIFUL! This reminds me of the butterflies I saw Monday. Cynthia took me to the Eucaliptus Grove where the Monnarch butterflies winter here in California. How beautiful to see them all floating in the air. You did an amazing job on this project. HUGS!
