Playing Hookey

Its such a lovely day so I took a break and had a walk in the woods with Willow and saw willow leaves like these.

I didn't take my camera but these are old photos taken about the same time of year.

As I was walking I started saying something I remember my Dad taught me when I was little

'Come little leaves said the wind one day

Over the meadows with me to play

Put on your dresses of scarlet and gold

For the summer has gone and the days have grown cold'

I might have remembered it wrong but I do love poetry and have all sorts of snippets stuck in my brain from the past.

'The woods are lonely dark and deep and I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep'

...and miles to SEW before I sleep!

Thanks you to those people who have put a link on their blog to my survey. I am going to thank you by giving you two 'tickets' in the draw.

As far as I can tell they are Robin, Jennyflower,Tricks, Julie of Mixed Media.

If I've missed anyone please let me know. Its a big blog world out there.

Only 25 wrists to go, and only three days. Its the draw on Friday.

That is a such a lovely snippet of verse, I am going to commit it to memory for next time I am out in the woods.

Beautiful verses. My whole yard is covered in those willow leaves, and I would dearly love to have some of those storybook looking toadstools as well!

Isn't it funny how words from our past come back to us at the funniest of times? The ones you remembered are lovely :-) x
