for once,

there was beauty here for me

under the wide northern skies

and once,

there was magic here for me

under the wide northern skies

find the time..

the time to read,

to breathe the fresh air in the morning,

to smile to the stranger that you meet at the office lift,

to have a lunchdate with an old friend,

to learn a new craft,

to write a letter,

to go somewhere special,

to REALLY be with the person you love,

or even to do nothing for a while..

i have returned to the northern skies

where the summer had not touched

the clouds that pass above..

Oh, and i have returned to the sombre grace

of the days too early to come and too early to stay..

DIDO - northern skies
