It's a bright and beautiful April Monday morning and reminds me of Jane Yolen's Grandmother Moon:


Grandmother Moon


Each day is a journey,

a leaving home,

over paths that wind

between rocks and bog.

Behind each rock

is a shadow;

behind each shadow,

a flower,

or a wellspring,

or a trembling rabbit,

or an unfolding fern.

Only if you look

will you find.

Only if you leave

will you arrive.

One step,

then another,

as day unrolls itself

along the road toward night.


And at evening,

look who welcomes us –

Grandmother Moon,

waiting in the doorway,

the stars in her hands –

to lead us safely home.


Jane Yolen
