The Day is Done
The day is done,
and the darkness
Falls from the
wings of Night,
As a feather is
From an eagle
in his flight.
― H.W. Longfellow
I'm sitting here chuckling as I read this
I was looking for something about "rest"
and if any of you were fans of the Brady Bunch
as I was in the 70s, you'll recall this poem being
read by Mike Brady during a talent show,
while his sons accentuated parts of the poem
with humorous bits of reality .... in this first
stanza, someone drops feathers on his book.
Ok, I admit it, I'm nerdy to remember that skit.
You can watch it here ... its 3 minutes.
“There is virtue in work and there is virtue in rest.
Use both and overlook neither.”
― Alan Cohen
