When the weather is cold and grey – hum a happy tune.

When the weather is cold and grey – hum a happy tune. Attitudes are, after all, a matter of mind over matter.

Hummingbird on feeder
Hummingbird on feeder

Within my Garden, rides a Bird
Upon a single Wheel —
Whose spokes a dizzy Music make
As ’twere a travelling Mill

He never stops, but slackens
Above the Ripest Rose —
Partakes without alighting
And praises as he goes


Emily Dickenson, Within My Garden, rides a Bird
