If you had your druthers
What would you like to do on this wintry February day when the snow is so thick I can't see the Cawston Hills, or even K Mountain, just across the valley from us.
Suppose it was summertime........
and you could go boating on a sea shell
or with Berthe Morisot who painted this lovely picture of two friends chatting
as they enjoyed a day on the river.
would you like to join this party of Renoir's friends at an after boating luncheon?
Louis Aston Knight?
or would you prefer a little country fishing?
Frank Weston Benson
perhaps you could gather on this New England beach in your summery best, under a blue sky
and the gauzy clouds of summer
Sorolla y Bastida
and afterwards, - take the children to the sea in Spain, for the Bathing Hour....
Wherever your imagination takes you it will be a warm day
with only the faintest breeze to stir the air;
a leafy bower to shade you if you decide to just languish
with a novel and a frosty glass of lemonade
or would you like a little mint with that and a dash of gin?
