Huffin' on Puffin
by jackill  24 Jul 2011
I sat for a while reflecting on Puffin, and though I try not to dwell on the past, after a day like yesterday its hard not to be maudlin.
Not the same but Puffin brought in mind W.B. Yeats' " Lake Isle of Inisfree"

"And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart's core."

while I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.

A special place. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1049/comment/6428/
