Sentimental Sunday :: Meadows of Heaven



. . . . . . . . . .

A picture is a poem without words.
Horace

. . . . . . . . . .

Dear Photograph . . .
oh, how I wish he could ride right out of your borders
and into that pasture again . . .
thank you for holding onto that moment in time . . .

. . . . . . . . . .

In the meadow of life
My acre of heaven . . .
In a place called home
Sailing the waves of past . . .

Rocking chair without a dreamer
A wooden swing without laughter
Sandbox without toy soldiers
Yuletide without the Flight . . .

Meadows of Heaven . . .

by
Nightwish

. . . . . . . . . .

Over the pallid sea,
and the silvery mist of the meadows.

Silently one by one,
in the infinite meadows of heaven,
Blossomed the lovely stars,
the forget-me-nots of the angels.

Longfellow
