As the World Goes Blind by dogmadic As the World Goes Blind by dogmadic
A fog drifts in, the heavy laden
Cold white ghost of the sea —
One by one the hills go out,
The road and the pepper-tree.

I watch the fog float in at the window
With the whole world gone blind,
Everything, even my longing, drowses,
Even the thoughts in my mind.

I put my head on my hands before me,
There is nothing left to be done or said,
There is nothing to hope for, I am tired,
And heavy as the dead.

Gray Fog
Sara Teasdale

dogmadic Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2009
Thanks for your comment. Yes I was extremely lucky with the swan and especially that it was foggy too! I was getting mad because I couldn't get any stereotypically foggy shots there in England (over many months) till this morning. :)

Thanks very much! It was a special place, even more so because it was foggy that morning. I'd been in England for many months at different times over a period of a few years and it was NEVER foggy when I was out with my camera. I was getting so frustrated because if you can't get a good foggy pic there then you'd almost better give up. :)
