circular time

walking around on church island in county sligo yesterday we probably saw the last of the bluebells : worry not they will be around next year for those who will walk in the woods, and below is the promised photograph of earlier glory. A number of years ago I copied a couple of verses by poet Frances Horovitz, quoted at the head of a chapter from a book we must have been publishing at the time, they have been with me always “Now is the time for walking in woods/by the cold stream come from the waterfall/are you afraid ?” So this is just to say thank you to the woods and all the trees and to the bluebells and to Frances Horovitz, today, the last thursday in May as the most wonderful blossoms turn pink on surrounding hawthorns. glory.
