circles

nibbles of ee on a sunday afternoon…
may my heart always be open to little
 
may my heart always be open to little
birds who are the secrets of living
whatever they sing is better than to know
and if men should not hear them men are old

may my mind stroll about hungry
and fearless and thirsty and supple
and even if it’s sunday may i be wrong
for whenever men are right they are not young

and may myself do nothing usefully
and love yourself so more than truly
there’s never been quite such a fool who could fail
pulling all the sky over him with one smile

    I'm still putting mine back together, but keeping the door open to little…that's about all it can handle right now 🙂
