Venus tonight, super steak, hobo packs, garden aches

Daily Newsletter for Friday, June 15, 2018

All the sun long it was running, it was lovely, the hay
Fields high as the house, the tunes from the chimneys, it was air
And playing, lovely and watery
And fire green as grass. And nightly under the simple stars
As I rode to sleep the owls were bearing the farm away,
All the moon long I heard, blessed among stables, the nightjars
Flying with the ricks, and the horses
Flashing into the dark
.

–Dylan Thomas (1914–53)
