Mountain water spring |

The well was dry beside the door,
And so we went with pail and can
Across the fields behind the house
To seek the brook if still it ran;

Not loath to have excuse to go,
Because the autumn eve was fair
(Though chill), because the fields were ours,
And by the brook our woods were there.

(From “Going for water” by Robert Frost)

Travelling round Europe in our camper van, much of our time was spent in search of clean drinking water. Sometimes our quest brought us to the most beautiful places – mountains, woods, fountains, streams. We found so much more than water.

  2. And, by the way, I love your picture–the combination of the light, the water, and the mountains are lovely.

  3. Lovey poem. I am sure you did see so many beautiful places. I have never been outside of the United States. We except when I was a baby. Mom said I was in Canada with them. Alas, I don’t remember a thing. “-D

    • The US is like 20 countries all in one – it has such diversity. I can understand why a huge portion of the population doesn’t have a passport. If Europe was a country then I’d say the situation would be similar here. Just jump in a car and drive – I’m sure there’s tons of beautiful places right on your doorstep!

      • Yes, there are a lot of places to see. I haven’t seen a lot of it, but would like to see some of it before I pass on. I have always wanted to go to Scotland and Australia too. Maybe some day. 🙂
