Seven geese pierce straight line over frigid bay,
Intervals between them constantly equal,
Pointed wings slash as if joined to an axle;
Today is the ideal moment between yesterday and tomorrow.
As I was putting my dogs out yesterday afternoon and a flock of geese flew overhead, that clinched it for me. I wound the yarn and sat down with the pattern, which has a beautiful flow to it. Lovely lace work, but simple enough to move along quite quickly. I will be traveling this weekend and wanted something easy to work on to bring along with me. This will be perfect!
It was very strange to see geese this far north flying at this time of year. Every autumn, I always mention how sad I feel when the birds leave and how each March, I rejoice when I hear those little chirpy noises again.
This winter has been a strange one for sure in regards to the birds. The robins were here much much longer than I have ever seen them stay and over the last week, I have heard a lot more bird chatter than I have ever remembered at this time in the winter. Perhaps I am just more aware of them.....or something is just a bit different this year. Hmmmmmm..........
