Spring Song

I was just thinking about how lucky I am this year. I get to experience the beauty of spring twice! Here on the west coast, spring has come in full bloom. The daffodils, tulips, and magnolia blossoms are in full bloom and it looks beautiful. But I head back to the prairies on the weekend where signs of spring are just starting to appear. I get to take delight in the joy of spring blossoms all over again! It's quite wonderful. 

Speaking of spring, I came across these gorgeous shots by Lucia and Mapp. They exude an essence of spring and are so dreamy and romantic. Just lovely. 

L.M. Montgomery summarizes the feeling of spring quite well in her poetry...I love her descriptions- they feel so full of life. 

Spring Song

Hark, I hear a robin calling!

List, the wind is from the south! 

And the orchard-bloom is falling

Sweet as kisses on the mouth. 

In the dreamy vale of beeches

Fair and faint is woven mist, 

And the river's orient reaches

Are the palest amethyst. 

Every limpid brook is singing

Of the lure of April days; 

Every piney glen is ringing

With the maddest roundelays. 

Come and let us seek together

Springtime lore of daffodils, 

Giving to the golden weather

Greeting on the sun-warm hills. 

Ours shall be the moonrise stealing

Through the birches ivory-white; 

Ours shall be the mystic healing

Of the velvet-footed night. 

Ours shall be the gypsy winding

Of the path with violets blue, 

Ours at last the wizard finding

Of the land where dreams come true
