    • Quiet: The power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, Susan Cain, Amazon kindle e-book.    
    • WE like March, his shoes are purple,   He is new and high; Makes he mud for dog and peddler,   Makes he forest dry; Knows the adder’s tongue his coming,          And begets her spot. Stands the sun so close and mighty   That our minds are hot. News is he of all the others;   Bold it were to die        With the blue-birds buccaneering   On his British sky.   Emily Dickinson
    • I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree, And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made: Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee; And live alone in the bee-loud glade.   And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow, Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings; There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow, And evening full of the linnet’s wings.   I will arise and go now, for always night and day I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore; While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey, I hear it in the deep heart’s core.   W.B. Yeats - 'The Lake Isle of Innisfree'
    • I, like most U.S. children of a certain age (not sure about my own children), learned this poem as a child and still remember the first 5 lines.    "Gitchee Gumee" is Lake Superior, one of the great lakes up on the U.S./Canadian border.  Thank you for posting this, meg.

    • By the shore of Gitchie Gumee,
      By the shining Big-Sea-Water,
      At the doorway of his wigwam,
      In the pleasant Summer morning,
      Hiawatha stood and waited.
      All the air was full of freshness,
      All the earth was bright and joyous,
      And before him through the sunshine,
      Westward toward the neighboring forest
      Passed in golden swarms the Ahmo,
      Passed the bees, the honey-makers,
      Burning, singing in the sunshine.
      Bright above him shown the heavens,
      Level spread the lake before him;
      From its bosom leaped the sturgeon,
      Aparkling, flashing in the sunshine;
      On its margin the great forest
      Stood reflected in the water,
      Every tree-top had its shadow,
      Motionless beneath the water.
      From the brow of Hiawatha
      Gone was every trace of sorrow,
      As the fog from off the water,
      And the mist from off the meadow.
      With a smile of joy and triumph,
      With a look of exultation,
      As of one who in a vision
      Sees what is to be, but is not,
      Stood and waited Hiawatha.   From The Song f Hiawatha XXII - Hiawatha's Departure by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
