Favorite Quote:
What things there are to write, if only one could write them! My mind is full of gleaming thought; gay moods and mysterious, moth-like meditations hover in my imagination, fanning their painted wings. But always the rarest, those streaked with azure and the deepest crimson, flutter away beyond my reach. ~Logan Pearsall Smith

Life is the flowers of spring
When before the sky had been grey
And the air cold
The wind harsh
The ground wet and muddy
But then you wake up in the morning
And you can't see the brown
Because your yard is covered over
With buttercups and clover
The beautiful yellow
Of the tiny flower
How much difference that makes
It's a sign of hope
And of more beauty to come
Flowers of spring
The daffodil
At first only green shoots
But then you spot a bud
And a few days later it blossoms
You run out with scissors
(Oh dear)
And cut the first yellow face for your mom
You run inside
"Look Mom, spring!"
So much joy inside one flower
Red and white and pink
Purple and white
Small and dainty
Life is the flowers of spring
The hope of warmth contained in their petals
