Swallow's Poem

By mac
This is a close (see under) in North Berwick, which has a swallow’s nest in it most years. Pictures of them included.
The full text of poem by Robert Louis Stevenson who used to live in North Berwick during the summer with his parents.

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.

CLOSE: It usually refers to a passageway between buildings and often enclosed. This one is only about 1.5 m wide so a test for my lens. The light on the right is the sun reflected from outside into the close.
