 Fading and Resisting

Post Office Murals by Kindred McLeary
Eight Originals painted with Tempera on Plaster
Installed in 1939 and now much faded
How a fallen begonia blossom fades
 How, despite sunlight, this
Print on polished cotton does not fade
Myself faded but Recovering
Reading Mary Oliver
Which arrived in today's mail, and I must owe someone
or something for this unexpected gift, but who? What?

but Fine

I love your upside down cat!
Your quotes and comments are inspirational.
Thank you, Michelle, for the link to your wonderful page.
