Roofs – by Joyce Kilmer
‘The road is wide and the stars are out and the breath of the night is
And this is the time when wanderlust should seize upon my feet.
But I’m glad to turn from the open road and the starlight on my
And leave the splendor of out-of-doors for a human dwelling place”.
I was introduced to Joyce Kilmer’s poetry in grade school, when we read his poem about trees. This part of his roofs poem rang true to my heart today. I could really relate to leaving the splendor of out-of-doors for a human dwelling place. The weather here has been glorious for weeks. The mountains and sky look so pretty, and the stars seem extra-twinkly.I have felt the need to cocoon lately. I get that way sometimes. Do you? Eventually, I just need to STOP!
So today is tiny task day. Today is for crossing off just one or two things from my procrastination list. That helps me feel at home within myself.
What helps you?
