Sunday Stroll Invitation

I Go Among Trees and Sit Still

I go among trees and sit still.
All my stirring becomes quiet
Around me like circles on water.
My tasks lie in their places
Where I left them, asleep like cattle…

Then what I am afraid of comes.
I live for a while in its sight.
What I fear in it leaves it,
And the fear of it leaves me.
It sings, and I hear its song.

By Wendell Berry from Sabbaths,
1987, North Point Press

If you have time to stroll today, or just to sit among the trees, please post about about it on your blog and then come back here with a comment and a link to your post. You may use the Sunday Stroll button at the top of this post on your post or side bar if you would like. I will add participant names to this post so other strollers can walk through your garden too.
Look who's strolling:
Cloudhands at Uncarved Block
Margaret at Periodic Pearls
Tabbie at Tabbie's Garden
Me here at The Quiet Country House

Thanks for listing me as a stroller early. We are going to Jeremy's for dinner and I won't be strolling this afternoon except down to their place.

No strolling for us today. It's going to rain all day long!

Happy Easter, Aisling!

Despite the chilly, blustery weather around here, I did get in an Easter Sunday Stroll. Please stop by:

Sunday splendor! Our weather was beautiful today.

Soon you will be having spring greenery everywhere at your Quiet Country House. Anticipation is a wonderful thing.
