Home Thoughts from Abroad


OH, to be in England now that April’s there
And whoever wakes in England sees, some morning, unaware,
That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf
Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf,
While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough
In England-now!

~ Robert Browning



Tomorrow and for the whole week
I'm going to be in one of my favorite places - London!
I'll miss you all
