With the atrocious weather that we have had lately and again today, I thought that I would upload this picture , but I don't think that my own feeling, today, of "nearer" is the same sentiment that was meant by the poet.
Likewise, these days, even in fine weather after I have spent an hour, or so, of hard graft in the garden, and I rest my old, aching, bones on the seat near this plaque and read the third line of the verse, I can't help but think that perhaps I am getting too much 'nearer' than is desired. LOL.
The feeling soon goes away, though, when I open a can.
I hope that you like my 'Silly Sunday' offering.
Humour and fun
