luck of the Irish

To you my soul's affections move
Devoutly, warmly, true:
My life has been a task of love,
One long, long thought of you.
- Thomas Moore

Amazing photo -- I marvel at how our children look so amazing so close-up -- the smoothness, the youth, so beautiful and pure and innocent but wise, too.

Song

A rowan like a lipsticked girl.
Between the by-road and the main road
Alder trees at a wet and dripping distance
Stand off among the rushes.

There are the mud-flowers of dialect
And the immortelles of perfect pitch
And that moment when the bird sings very close
To the music of what happens.

~ Seamus Heaney
