in the ivy

The Ivy Green

Oh, a dainty plant is the Ivy green,
That creepeth o'er ruins old!...

Creeping where no life is seen,
A rare old plant is the Ivy green.

Fast he stealeth on, though he wears no wings,
And a staunch old heart has he.
How closely he twineth, how tight he clings...

Creeping where grim death hath been,
A rare old plant is the Ivy green.

Whole ages have fled and their works decayed,
And nations have scattered been;
But the stout old Ivy shall never fade,
From its hale and hearty green...

Creeping on where time has been,
A rare old plant is the Ivy green.

Charles Dickens

While walking to the store do errands for my dad in my childhood neighborhood, I was captivated by this wall of ivy and couldn't resist a dance exchange with it - dancing wherever you find yourself in life - even while doing errands :~) Although the English Ivy is considered to be an invasive species, I love how it thrives in the Pacific North West, often covering the 'unsightly,' such as this wire fence, so magnificently in lush green life...

Thank you for viewing / reading this blog... I hope it may inspire you to dance wherever you find yourself in life...
