Peace for your Path...

"peace. it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart." (unknown)

"Hurt No Living Thing" by Christina Rossetti

"Hurt no living thing;
Ladybird, nor butterfly,
Nor moth with dusty wing,
Nor cricket chirping cheerily,
Nor grasshopper so light of leap,
Nor dancing gnat, nor beetle fat,
Nor harmless worms that creep."- Christina Rossetti

What a wonderful poem, Robin! I loved it, and look forward to sharing it a series we'll be running on respecting insects later in the year! Thanks so much for posting it ... Ben (Not One Sparrow)
