A DAILY PHOTOGRAPH FROM "THE VENICE OF AMERICA"
NOW ON SUMMER VACATION IN HARBOR SPRINGS, MICHIGAN
Perfect. I have nothing to add either. Just hope people heed the sign.
I'm all for cremation.
Whose woods these are I think I know.His house is in the village though;He will not see me stopping hereTo watch his woods fill up with snow.My little horse must think it queerTo stop without a farmhouse nearBetween the woods and frozen lakeThe darkest evening of the year.He gives his harness bells a shakeTo ask if there is some mistake.The only other sound's the sweepOf easy wind and downy flake.The woods are lovely, dark and deep.But I have promises to keep,And miles to go before I sleep,And miles to go before I sleep.

at Tahquamenon Falls, by any chance?
What an excellent find, B. Squared. Thanks for posting it.
And so true. We are one with nature.
Excellent---found in the woods---how neat is that! MB
Perfect, I'm glad you posted it!@ Léia - I really love that one...
Makes one stop and ponder 'where we are and where we're going'.
This is so incredible. I just bought a vintage postcard YESTERDAY with that same saying. It was mailed from Sarasota Springs in 1949 and on the back it says, "This verse from the Ancient Portuguese is at the entrance of the Sarasota Jungle Gardens and has been used in Forest Reservations of Portugal for more than a thousand years."Oh, the serendipity of the Internet!Jan
Nice find. Really makes me miss hiking in the woods. As you know, we just don't have forests down here like the ones in the mitten state.
An excellent prayer/poem. I've never seen something like this before.
Love the tree "voice" It made me feel all warm and fuzzy - until the coffin part.
Beautiful prayer... Trees are very special plants... very few age with such grandeur!Have a wonderful weekend!
And we're all way over Tiger Woods
I hope whoever passes by this sign is paying attention. :)
I love that.
Beautifully written! Thanks for sharing this.
Amen to that.
Many of the fires are made by criminals. Unfortunatelly these words don't mean a thing to them.
Aaawww. How sweet! I like that very much. If only everyone respected nature the way they should.It's scorching over here right now. What is it like over your neck of the woods? Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!
That's so sweet. And fortunately it's not Tiger Woods or the sign would be somewhere and the tree would be romping behind the bushes!!!
