Photos and poetry 8 – The Confirmation – For Valentines Day.

young couple kissing on their wedding day


Yes, yours, my love, is the right human face,
I in my mind had waited for this long,
Seeing the false and searching for the true,
Then found you as a traveller finds a place
Of welcome suddenly amid the wrong
Valleys and rocks and twisting roads. But you,
What shall I call you? A fountain in a waste,
A well of water in a country dry,
Or anything that’s honest and good, an eye
That makes the whole world bright. Your open heart,
Simple with giving, gives the primal deed,
The first good world, the blossom, the blowing seed,
The hearth, the steadfast land, the wandering sea.
Not beautiful or rare in every part.
But like yourself, as they were meant to be.

Edwin Muir.

  1. Sweet photo! I have a hard time imagining “wrong valleys and rocks and twisting roads”…they all seem inviting to me! Keep loving the world, Helen, as you do. It makes you a blossom in a field of wild flowers!
