Ode To Spring

"My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams." Abram L. Urban

"Butterflies are self propelled flowers." R H Heinlein

"Happiness is a butterfly which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly may alight upon you." Nathaniel Hawthorne

"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome." Anne Bradstreet

"The year's at the spring
And the day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hillside's dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn:
God's in His heaven
All's right with the world!"
Robert Browning

"An altered look about the hills;
A Tyrian light the village fills;
A wider sunrise in the dawn;
A deeper twilight on the lawn;
A print of a vermilion foot;
A purple finger on the slope;
A flippant fly upon the pane;
A spider at his trade again;
An added strut in chanticleer;
A flower expected everywhere;
An axe shrill singing in the woods;
Fern-odors on untravelled roads,-
All this, and more I cannot tell,
A furtive look you know as well,
And Nicodemus' mystery
Receives its annual reply."
Emily Dickinson
