Music


"I have heard this music before, saith the body."
by Mary Oliver

Yes, I have heard it before,
the sounds of the sea
the call of the whale.
Each time my heart sings
and I am delighted.
It is my hearts music.

How beautiful Marilyn, being surrounded by the Great Lakes, the sound has always been so soothing. I can't wait to be able to walk the beach again and listen.

My heart sings this song, too!

I love the way Mary Oliver writes things that speak for so many of us.

What a great photo. How wonderful to live close to the coast.

I think we all have a sound that delights us. For me it would be the chirpping of the birds early in the morning reminding me that it is indeed a new day. I will be visiting the ocean soon and will be listening for that song.

Love, Love, Love the daffodils. Are they blooming already in your yard?

Yes, indeed. That's how I feel when we go to South Carolina -- I could listen to the ocean forever.

I am headed to the beach next week, so this photo is definitely singing to me!

In reading your last few posts, I just had to stop at this one. Is that a whale I see here? Did you hear it? It's amazingly close to the coast, or is that an island? Please, I want to know more!

Love the poem too!
