I woke up to a present from Fred. She'd made the book herself,
illustrated it and written the poems while Martin and I slept in.

I reckon she's got a bit of the Thoreau about her...ReplyDelete
'I went to the horse
to dance with it of course'
'I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately'
(Only Fred's powms are more joyous and less waffly)
It's obvious that I have been a mother (well, still am),and worked in early childhood education. I didn't need the translation.ReplyDelete
