Swallows Travel To And Fro
by Robert Louis Stevenson

SWALLOWS travel to and fro,
And the great winds come and go,
And the steady breezes blow,
Bearing perfume, bearing love.
Breezes hasten, swallows fly,
Towered clouds forever ply,
And at noonday, you and I
See the same sunshine above.

Dew and rain fall everywhere,

They paddle with staccato feet
In powder-pools of sunlight,
Small blue busybodies
Strutting like fat gentlemen
With hands clasped
Under their swallowtail coats;
And, as they stump about,
Their heads like tiny hammers
Tap at imaginary nails
In non-existent walls.

New Castle, July 4, 1878

Touching each one on His way.

Slow Dancers
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

In shadows of blue
clouds slow dance across the skies
Tender sunlight dream
follows mute, chronic drifters
round and round the blooming world

O'er shady forests
desert flowers and green seas
blithe homes and fast cars
Greeting fields of lavender

in the mellow morn
a revelry of roses
pervasive heat, grapes

glossy trees tremble
day's marching into the gold
butterfly frenzy

the day star twinkles
entering doors and windows

Plush and Lush
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

among huge red blooms
ornamental grasses wave
fleecy clouds wander

drowsing in fierce sun
very fragrant snowball bush
greenest grass carpets

purple peonies
shaded by cream sunflowers
