The cure for exhaustion
with toil and endeavour,
I wish I could sleep
for ever and ever.
But then this reflection
my longing allays
I shall be doing it
one of these days
I'm not having an exceptionally busy day, just a normal Monday.
Well, we did go picking strawberries again after breakfast, before it got too warm. Made some jam, froze some berries, and sugared the rest for eating today and tomorrow. These berries are much softer and juicier than the last ones we got. This makes them more delicious but they won't keep more than two days in the fridge.
So now lunch is done and my book is waiting to be read. Someone, I don't remember who, recommended it and I'm enjoying it so far
( I've read 112 pages of 190 pages). The book is called Hannah Coulter and the author is Wendell Berry.
I hope you liked the poem. It seems to me both humorous and serious at the same time.
