... and here I am, taking a coffee break and wishing that the sun would shine!
It was too cold to stay long in the garden. Eliot didn't appear to notice as he watched the tree just waiting for the squirrel to make an appearance.
From a human viewpoint the tree is a beauty ... not that the gardener would agree. There are the beech nuts, the leaves and the sticky flowers in the spring that all descend to cover the grass ... but the autumn colour is great when the sun shines and the spring growth will come fresh and bright. The seasons each have something of beauty and even the fallen leaves make an attractive pattern on the still very green grass!
So ... the coffee is finished ... and the next thing awaits ...
Come, make your needs, your burdens known:
he will present them at the throne;
and angel hosts are waiting there
his messages of love to bear.
Church Hymnal number 8 verse 5
Josiah Condor (1789-1855)
