A Prayer in Spring

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day; And give us not to think so far away As the uncertain harvest; keep us here All simply in the springing of the year. Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night; And make us happy in the happy bees, The swarm dilating round the perfect trees. And make us happy in the darting bird That suddenly above the bees is heard,The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill, And off a blossom in mid air stands still. For this is love and nothing else is love, The which it is reserved for God above To sanctify to what far ends He will,But which it only needs that we fulfil. Robert Frost Read poems about / on: happy, spring, god, night, love, flower, tree

What a nice prayer for spring!
Like your your photo of yellow flowers. During recent trip to S.F. I saw lots of wild yellow and purple flowers. What a feast for the eyes!
These photos are the basis of a three stage painting of spring on the river
Forsythia. I love this first spring flowering bush. And did you know you can eat the blossoms?
I did not know one could eat the flowers my friends tellme thy sr\\ee the edogwoods ,cherry and purple buds of the trees. Wehen in thw forest i hear all the new birds Three mountain lions spotted in forest preserve. One ventured into Chicago It charge a policemen and killed It was in very good condition,weighed 190 pounds. also dens of cayotes. they say the couger must have walked fro dycota looking for a mate.
