Poetry Friday: The Mother's Return by William Wordsworth

Current Mood: sick
Current Song: Annie's Always Waiting (For the Next One to Leave) by Matt Nathanson

Her joy is like an instinct, joy
Of kitten, bird, or summer fly;
She dances, runs without an aim,
She chatters in her ecstasy.

- excerpt from The Mother's Return by William Wordsworth

So sorry you're sick.

Love the Wordsworth excerpt you shared. I must find the whole thing. Take care.
