Tiny troubles hiding amongst the dill and parsley



I to my perils
Of cheat and charmer
Came clad in armour
By stars benign.
Hope lies to mortals
And most believe her,
But man’s deceiver
Was never mine.

The thoughts of others
Were light and fleeting,
Of lovers’ meeting
Or luck or fame.
Mine were of trouble,
And mine were steady;
So I was ready
When trouble came.

A.E. Housman, A Shropshire Lad

    Tiny troubles, tiny troubles
    may they always be
    and not too troublesome
    for the flowers
    or for me.

    Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂 Hugs ~ Laura
