Story telling from Australia
The Secret Joy
Face to face with the sunflower,
Cheek to cheek with the rose,
We follow a secret highway
Hardly a traveller knows.
The gold that lies in the folded bloom
Is all our wealth;
We eat of the heart of the forest
With innocent stealth.
We know the ancient roads
In the leaf of a nettle,
And bathe in the blue profound
Of a speedwell petal. Mary Webb
Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, may your weekend be filled with joy, and thank you to Jo Bakas for these glorious pics of this year’s Floriade Festival in Canberra.
