If – Then

If only sunny hours count,

I’m only half alive;

If boring hues are not allowed,

then how can painters thrive?

If mountain-top reflections are

the only ones worth thought,

the valleys couldn’t teach us what

despair and troubles ought.

    Beautifully rendered message of truth, Melody! And I, too, love the sundial–is it in your garden, also? That garden must be HUGE! God bless you–love, Caddo

      Yes, this sundial is in there too – everything is relative, I guess. How big is HUGE? I know how much weeding time it takes, but as to square feet or acres?? Couldn’t tell ya…
