Two Hours In April (Our Lady Of Solitude)

All summer long she touched me

She gathered in my soul

From many a thorn, from many thickets

Her fingers, like a weaver's

Quick and cool

And the light came from her body

And the night went through her grace

All summer long she touched me

And I knew her, I knew her

Face to face

 

And her dress was blue and silver

And her words were few and small

She is the vessel of the whole wide world

Mistress, oh mistress, of us all

 

Dearly dead; Queen of Solitude

I thank you with my heart

for keeping me so close to thee

while so many, oh so many, stood apart

 

And the light came from her body

And the night went through her grace

All summer long she touched me

I knew her, I knew her

Face to face

A statue I discovered in a graveyard in Glencullen, County Dublin.

 

All shots with the 2hrs title were shot on the "scenic" way home from work to-day. The Sun was shining so I thought, why not? I'm glad I took my camera, & yes , all these shots were taken within the 2hrs mentioned! (though any postproduction with Picasa on many of the shots happened later, of course!).

 

Damn that Motorway, so boring...I should drive the long way home more often.
