Spring is the morning bird song,
Crocuses and Daffodils,
Blossoms blowing in the breeze,
And pies on windowsills.
Spring's a gentle warming,
After the winter's thaw.
It's nature's resurrection,
That leaves us all in awe.
Spring is nature's promise,
Of hope and rebirth.
A time when all the Angels,
Redecorate the Earth.
Spring's a time for planting,
Pretty flowers to adorn.
A time for being thankful,
Just because you were born.
Spring is the morning sunshine,
And the afternoon delights.
When Mother Nature celebrates,
Her God given rites.

Re: SPRING |
Very nice, June. A cheerful note on which to begin our day.
Sally in North Idaho where it actually feels like spring today and is NOT windy for a change.
How very true. I had a conversation today with a neighbour and we were talking about how much we apprecaite the simple things in life, and were wondering if it was because we both had a disorder. We have a mutual friend who is also a neighbour and who is depressed and who will not leave her house. I had been walking my dog through the woods in front of my house and been saying how lucky i was to have this facility so close and how wonderful i had felt to be able to see the bluebells, the wood anenomes and some yellow flowers etc etc. I then suddenly remembered a card that had been sent to me right at the beginning of my sick leave from work, saying
" all the world's beauty is in one flower."
I know what is meant by that now. And I am appreciative of the fact that i can see that one flower (well, ok it was a whole lot of wild flowers, but you know what i mean) and can also appreciate it's beauty, bcause my depressed neighbour won't be able to do that. Perhaps I am lucky after all.
Pippa - the "mental picture" that I got with your posting was just as beautiful as the poem from June! Mary
Pippa, I hope your neighbor is getting some help with her depression so that she will be able to enjoy the beauty of your surroundings, too.
we need some spring photos here. I want to see a bluebell and a wood anemone. Last year we had some turtle identification photos.
so true. How lovely.
kathy, whose weather witch powers temporarily left her last night as she did not even feel a thunderstorm.
No more weather witch? Maybe it's just the warmer weather in general, instead of cold and wet. Either way one less thing to worry about is always something to celebrate.
We are expecting 4-8 inches of snow tonight, even though its almost 60 today. Gotta love Maine. I'm getting my fannel out again!
O.k Kathy. I give up. What's a fannel?
Pippa..an ignorant Scot!
Actual Pippa it's me Denise who wrote fannel, instead of flannel. Just me and my poor spelling. As my fourth grade teacher, Mrs Gallant said, "Denise your spelling is abominable". Some things never change.
In Maine where it did snow last night, about 3 inches worth. And where it is really cold today.
