And The Sun Shone

And the Sun had on a crown
Wrought of gilded thistle-down,
And a scarf of velvet vapor,
And a ravelled-rainbow gown;
And his tinsel-tangled hair,
Tossed and lost upon the air,
Was glossier and flossier
Than any anywhere.

And the South Wind's eyes were two
Little dancing drops of dew,
As he puffed his cheeks, and pursed his lips,
And blew and blew and blew!
And the Sun's-- like diamond-stone,
Brighter yet than ever known,
As he knit his brows and held his breath,
And shone and shone and shone!

Portion of the poem The South Wind And The Sun. 
By James Whitcomb Riley.
My very favorite poet.



  1. Thanks! I actually don't like Utah very much... but if you search, you can find beauty anywhere! :)

  2. Love the photos as usual. I also relate to your comment...I live in south-central PA and do not like it much in any way. I do find beauty here, and have a few special places that get me through until I can move away in about 2 years.

    I think we are sent to certain places, as well as in the paths of certain people, for lessons. Either to be learned or taught as case may be. That said, I'm looking forward to moving on when the time is right. :)

  3. Thanks! I agree Chelle!! I'm very very glad I'm in Utah, I wouldn't have met Brad, or Wicket, OR Charlie!

  4. I am so loving the sunflowers.... That mountain is beautiful, I love the wild shape of it. Down her in Southern California we have the Anza Borrego Desert but most of our mountains just have tons of boulders all over them, not so much crazy shapes like the one in your photo.

    -Much love, Kim

  5. Kim- I love the mountains here! I'm not sure if I've ever been to Anza Borrego Desert.. I would love to visit next time I'm in California! :)
