Thought I'd update my journal since it's not winter anymore!
Here are some of my recent faves:
Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems. ~Rainer Maria Rilke
And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.
~Percy Bysshe Shelley, "The Sensitive Plant"
"Is it so small a thing To have enjoy'd the sun, To have lived light in the spring, To have loved, to have thought, to have done..." -- Matthew Arnold
Spring is sooner recognized by plants than by men. ~Chinese Proverb
Yesterday the twig was brown and bare;
To-day the glint of green is there;
Tomorrow will be leaflets spare;
I know no thing so wondrous fair,
No miracle so strangely rare.
I wonder what will next be there!
Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!" ~Robin Williams
