Lightly Child, Lightly.

(He) lived a Yeatsian dream life where peace came dropping slow.

  5. Oh man. You did it. Again.
    Big sigh.
    Big breath.
    Big peace dropping slow.

  6. This is one of your best photos. And to pair it with Yeats is so fitting. I love Yeats’ poetry.

    Back in the 60’s when I lived in a commune in Philadelphia, Hamilton Camp was one of my favorite folksingers. Still is. He is most well known for “Pride of Man” but my favorite is “The Lake Isle of Innisfree.” I remember singing this song à cappella one midnight, while paddling a canoe under the moon and the stars through the Boundary Waters with my Outward Bound crew. Magical.
