The Book

            

The rose of all the world is not for me~

I want for my part, the little white rose of Scotland

That smells sharp and sweet and breaks the heart.

Hugh Macdiarmid.

Been out and about today so just a quick entry with a picture of the said book and today’s poem. Love

I looked it up on Amazon .com.    They said that  Island is a detailed and lovingly illustrated account of a newly married couple's first idyllic year on the tiny Scottish island of Easdale. It took them 6 years to complete, and it will delight anyone who responds to the romance of life on a remote island.  It sounds and looks lovely.
