Welcome Spring

Spring Quiet
by Christina Rossetti

Gone were but the Winter,
Come were but the Spring,
I would go to a covert
Where the birds sing.

Where in the whitethorn
Singeth a thrush,
And a robin sings
In the holly-bush.

Full of fresh scents
Are the budding boughs
Arching high over
A cool green house:

Full of sweet scents,
And whispering air
Which sayeth softly:
“We spread no snare;

“Here dwell in safety,
Here dwell alone,
With a clear stream
And a mossy stone.

“Here the sun shineth
Most shadily;
Here is heard an echo
Of the far sea,
Though far off it be.”

Our first rose of the season. Perfect timing don’t you think?

Taking a few days off to enjoy the beautiful weather that spring has brought us and spend time with family. See you again in a few days!

Happy Spring!

    Really Sweet Painting.
    And I am jealous for your rose – but I will have mine in 2-1/2 – 3 months.
