Long Time Awake


The mountains scratch the sky
Birds of prey shield the sun from unprotected eyes
Nature is secure
Nature is the ruler.
Clouds sprinkle rain, with magical restorative powers
There’s fortune in this land, above and below ground
Everyday day is a gift.
The seas are high but the waves are mellow
Everything’s in order
Everyone has their own space.
Nature is perfect, Nature is the queen
The hours go slowly by,
Long Time Awake

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
