A Life Ago…#wwwblogs

In a crofter’s cottage
settled in lands wild
the earth yielded life
to hands weathered

Wind and time
and winter cloud
dared all comers
to find their brave

A partnership
a battle
a life carved
on highlands

A passion imprinted
and carried
through generations

Hardy souls emerge
when crises arise

And indomitable will triumphs
where all seems impossible

The heart of a woman
the center of the home
the fire in the hearth
and the force working
to unite all

Yielding riches
from rocks
and sustenance
from sorrow
– Caroline A. Slee
