Spring Blessings


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, from "The Sensitive Plant"

Felicitas--Beautiful picture and verse. Thanks for sharing.

Where I am, the ground is no longer frigid. However, it's still too soggy. Your post brings hope and a smile.

Best regards.

Felicitas said...

Wendilea - I so agree. I love everything about this season. It's just so hopeful and full of promise.

Zen - It snowed here yesterday, too. I'm just refusing to acknowledge it.

Brian & Carlos - Glad you're smiling!

Ronda - Happy Equinox and Blessed Ostara! Six weeks of spring perfection is on order.

Maha - You are welcome : )

Thomas - I feel the same... and that is why it's my favourite season.

Shadow - Shelley's words are divine. The whole poem (which was far too long to print here) is spectacular.
