Rest






The Day is Done

The day is done,
and the darkness

Falls from the
wings of Night,

As a feather is
wafted downward

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
