Going West of Vienna
The Sheltering Sky at Sunset


Bring me the sunset in a cup,
Reckon the morning's flagons up


And say how many Dew,
Tell me how far the morning leaps—


Tell me what time the weaver sleeps
Who spun the breadth of blue!
Emily Dickinson

    1. Wished I could send you a bit of warmth and sunshine, we have plenty of both right now: 100°F and blue sky!

  2. Such lovely, painted skies dear friend.
    It is half past three in the morning and the rain has just started rattling on the roof, such a comforting sound. Think I'll go back to bed again after my peppermint tea.
