Random Poetry on a Wednesday

3 Nov

I have been planning to make a hanging for our bedroom featuring a bit of poetry. Something like this:

I have been trying to decide on a poem or a bit of a poem, and reading lots of poetry.  For some reason a poem by W.H. Auden pushed its way out of some cobwebby corner of my mind today and now I have the perfect bit of poetry, the third and fourth stanzas of “As I Walked Out One Evening”

“I’ll love you, dear, I’ll love you
Till China and Africa meet,
And the river jumps over the mountain
And the salmon sing in the street,

‘I’ll love you till the ocean
Is folded and hung up to dry
And the seven stars go squawking
Like geese about the sky.”

Now to decide on style and color.
