My dear Sir | To an Old Soul

by Elouise


To Rev. George MacDonald

My dear Sir,

Whilst traveling in the high desert of Oregon
Akin to yet unlike your Scottish highlands,
I serendipitously came upon a magnificent sight
Joyfully assembled, I am certain, just for you.

Our journey being long and arduous,
We covenanted to halt upon our return
So as to capture this sign from heaven
In all its aromatic and motley creativity.


Perhaps from your current location
You have already detected this wonder?
No matter. I purposed in my heart to
Forward it to you and yours post-haste.

Please accept this token of my respect and
Admiration for the work of your life that
Remains fresh and new every morning
Unlike the old soles souls here gathered.


Yours very truly,
Another Old Soul
