This Monday I am going to read to my girlies from "The Book of a Thousand Poems"

Here is a poem from the book:

The Lavender Bush

At her doorway Mrs. Mayle
Grows a bush of lavender,
Large, and round, and silver-pale,
Where the blooms, a misty blur,
Lift their purple spikes on high,
Loved of butterflies and moths,
And on these, to bleach and dry,
Mrs. Mayle spreads little cloths.

Tray cloths, mats of cobweb-weave,
All of them too fairy-fine
For a careful soul to leave
Dangling on a washing-line,
Mrs. Mayle lays softly there
Till she brings them in once more,
Sweet with blossoms-scented air,
From the bush beside the door.

  1. Thanks for inviting me to your linky party. I just linked up with Salted Honey Lavender Shortbread and then realized it goes with the poem you posted. Neat!

  2. Lisa, you are so very welcome!!! That shortbread looks simply divine and just how neat that it goes with the poem, I love that!!!

  3. Hi Marie! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your sweet comment! :) It's so much fun meeting new blog friends and sharing ideas! You have a lovely blog here - and after reading that poem you posted made me wish even more for summer when I can hang my sheets outside in the warm sunshine..... :)
