Be with us in the circle of our love,
Even if by chance you are alone.
Our greetings we have hope your heart will move,
Uniting our good wishes with your own.
Remember there are those who think of you,
Vested in the will to be a friend.
As distant hills give depth to what we view,
Let these words some grace to your day lend.
Each life is lived behind a sheltering veil,
Not lifted but for love. Yet when we will,
There is a wind that shifts the rampart frail,
Invading with sweet scent the spirit still.
Now may we all enjoy this fragrance fine,
Each each other's secret Valentine.
Today on this day of Valentine I went searching for a light hearted poem. However, the very first poem that I came across was this one and it just made me sigh. You know how I have mentioned in the past how I think of my fiber grrls as sisters....sisters in that proverbial hive always looking out for each other. Somehow this little sonnet has truly embraced that thought for me on this day.
Happy Valentine's Day Grrls!
Now you may be wondering why I have that picture of Cleo up. Look close at the picture.....move in just a little closer. Do you see it? Why yes, Miss Cleo has a perfect heart on her shoulder. Can you believe it? I never noticed it until a small child pointed it out to me as I was standing in the show ring with her....and why yes, I did see it too.
The girls keeping in stride for the holiday, wore their special Valentine's Day Snoods for breakfast today.....silly little dogs...
And now a little fiber....
I decided to join Margene in this month's SpinKnit. What it entails is spending some time spinning in February and then knitting what we spun in March. Doesn't that sound like fun?
The roving above is some that I had dyed to bring to the NETA SPA with me next weekend, but I couldn't resist snagging some of it for myself as a little Valentine's gift, so this will be my February Spinning and this is what I plan to make with the roving.
These grrls were so generous to share this beautiful Valentine's gift with all of us here in blogland. Thank you!!!
