Spring is here!

Today is a lovely day outside. The sun is shining finally and the children are playing outback by the apple tree.

I have raked the leaves from last year and the irises are growing more and more everyday.

It is a beautiful spring day here in Vermont.

Too perfect to be inside on the computer :) but here is a Lovely little poem for Spring that I thought you all might enjoy.

A Prayer in Spring
Robert Frost

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 fulfill.
