An Ode to Parth

Actually it is an "Ode on Intimations of Immortality" excerpt dedicated to our former ram, Parth, Shetland Sheep.  Rest in peace sweat natured boy.  May your next incarnation be free from pain and suffering and filled with green pastures.

Parth, Shetland Ram

There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,
The earth, and every common sight
                 To me did seem
            Apparelled in celestial light,
The glory and the freshness of a dream.
It is not now as it hath been of yore;--
             Turn wheresoever I may,
              By night or day,
The things which I have seen I now can see no more.
- William Wordsworth
Arianna with one of Parth's lambs.
