In love with Swallows

Since swallows are featured in my logo I thought I’d do a post dedicated to them. They are symbols of good fortune, loyalty and freedom.

Found this beautiful little poem…

I love my hour of wind and light,
I love men’s faces and their eyes,
I love my spirit’s veering flight
Like swallows under evening skies.

Sara Teasdale
