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 fulfill.

--Robert Frost-- 

Well, Spring is just about gone, and Summer will soon be here to take her place....although, for many of us, Summer has already blessing us with Her heat.  Be careful this weekend, and if you 'must' be out in this heat, be sure to take care of yourself.  Heatstroke is no joke.

Hoping you all have a wonderful weekend filled with love and joy.


  1. Have a fantastic weekend Mary x x x

  2. Yes, the Summer Solstice is just around the corner!

  3. It's kind of cool in my neck of the woods. ;0)
    Oh well, not officially summer until the 21st and I can dig it!
    Happy weekend off from work to you Mary.
    I looked forward to those too.
