2014 Seasons in the Sun

Sunday, January 20, 2013

Cloudless Sunday...

 Well, we seem to have hit one of those bumps in the middle of winter, where the weather is uncomfortably perfect, and a morning ride to Seal Beach is mandatory. Contrary to what you might think after looking at the photos below, the San Gabriel River Trail was as busy as I have ever seen it, and bike parking at the River's End Cafe (and at the pier) was at a premium. 

I tried to find a good W.B. Yeats poem about the sea, but he seemed to mostly write about the mountains, lakes, rivers and streams. To an Isle in the Water will have to do:

Shy one, shy one,
Shy one of my heart,
She moves in the firelight
Pensively apart.
She carries in the dishes,
And lays them in a row.
To an isle in the water
With her would I go.
She carries in the candles,
And lights the curtained room
Shy in the doorway
And shy in the gloom;
And shy as a rabbit,
Helpful and shy.
To an isle in the water
With her would I fly.
