Blue skies? Smiling at me?
‘Fraid not! The sky one November day in the Berkshires:
Be still, sad heart, and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I love it!
Old Henry W. L. was there, quoting away those famous famous lines, and I never knew it.
Pauline, I will cease repining forthwith! Thank you!
Love the dramatic lines.
It was dramatic then — more lovable now that summer’s actually here!
Thanks for stopping by, Klassi —
This sky seems to be brooding… rather appropriate for November, I suppose…
Oh, yes. If you remember in Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, it opens with Jo brooding, saying November is the most dismal month of the year, that’s why I was born in it — or something like that.
As a November child myself, I always loved her saying that! But have always lived with brooding weather for birthdays!!!!!!
The tree limbs look like the veins of the world.
What a wonderful image! Cheers it up considerably, Therese!!!!!!
Thanks for sharing this, i am saving the pictures to be my wallpaper when am terribly sad.
This picture is soooooo emotional….
Thanks for coming by, Mizz.
There are some much more cheerful Sky photos coming — maybe one would work as a cheerer-upper in time of sadness?????
Oh my – Beautiful!
I love the trees when they undress in Fall! Beautiful picture and I love the month of November but I am not crazy about the weather that comes in the months after.
I’m with you about the months after — and ambivalent about November, by the end of which the trees are quite quite naked!
