In rain and shade
Under bright overcast skies

Near a ferocious brook
That babbles on by

The patter of raindrops
On the soft forest floor

Invigorating freshness
That’s needed for sure

A cool wind echoes
Between all of the trees

Bringing in calmness
And a good sense of peace

      1. Its probably not your blog at all Tom.. I think at the moment me and gadgets are not compatable.. πŸ™‚ Been through another blip this morning in an update that took over an hour for Windows to configure.. With the do not switch off your computer logo flashing… GO figure! I ended up practicing on my guitar while waiting and thought it may well be another trip to the PC shop.. But it finally sorted itself out. πŸ™‚ I am loosing heart with my new PC..
