Home-sickness for my little dwelling has come upon my mind
(Irish, 12th Century: author unknown)
A quietness falling on my small house. And the fuchsia that keeps on well into winter. I wasn’t there to cut it back, or to watch the settling of things. Snow delineates before it covers, so that nothing is absent, nothing ever settles, the calves in the plain, the deer on the moor.
