The Maritimes

Remembering my Irish Roots....

 William Butler Yeats wrote.....
 I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin built there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honey bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glad,

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnights all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway or on the pavements gray,
 I hear it in the deep heart's core.

linking this up:


  1. Got to *love* this post!!! :D

    Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, lassie!!!

  2. Lovely photos and it is so true that you hear the water lapping in "the deep heart's core" - especially at this time of year.

  3. Oooh, that photo of walking on the pebbles reminds me of growing up on the South coast of England and walking back up to my parents on the pebbles, having been in the sea. I would be freezing cold but couldn't go quickly because of the stones. Grrr!!

    Anyway, sorry, I'm rambling!

    These are beautiful images!

    Happy St Patrick's Day to you!
