The Gift of a Feather

Hello!   It's Monday morning and the start of another week!    

Totally Gorjuss has a challenge with the theme of using a feather.   
It made  me think of  a poem that spoke of a bird giving the greatest gift he had-  
It was a feather -  It was a gorgeous poem and for the life of me - I cannot find it anywhere!  
Please let me know if anyone knows where I can find this poem.  
It is so beautiful!   

It is my turn to post at our wonderful Paper Temptress Blog!   
Of course I eagerly pulled out my beautiful paper from Paper Temptress!  
 I did not have a stamp with a feather so I decided to sketch it myself!
I found my inspiration from my three feather babies!

  2. Great coloring of the feather and great background too Marie!

  3. wow, this is just stunning, and you drew you own feather, how awesome :).

    1. Thank you Becky. Yes. It is fun to ry to color something you sketch. I feel a little shy posting it because I have not had any formal training and have not tried drawing for very long - but it's fun anyway. Getting ready for retirement in a year and a half - just in case I can no longer afford stamps LOL Hugs and have a great day!
