Wandering Path


The love of field and coppice,
Of green and shaded lanes.
Of ordered woods and gardens
Is running in your veins,

Strong love of grey-blue distance
Brown streams and soft dim skies
I know but cannot share it,
My love is otherwise.

~ Dorothea Mackellar 1904

I would so love to sit and look and listen to this stream and also to wander along beside it, of course with my extended right arm with camera.

So 'American creek!' so pretty. I would recognise it anyway. Lovely picture and ditty.
Blessings, Star

Hi Jo,
What a beautiful picture...makes me think of home. I love the lighting in this picture too and the words of the poem fit the photo perfectly. Thanks for sharing.
