What a wonderful world!

“May God grant you always…

A sunbeam to warm you,

A moonbeam to charm you,

A sheltering Angel, so nothing can harm you,

Laughter to cheer you,

Faithful friends near you.

Nature’s Playful Colors

It’s a beautiful time, it’s spring, it’s May

Warm wind has blown the clouds away.

Mother Nature shows her gift

the word to paint, the moods to lift.

**

Her meadows and heathens, oh we are keen

seeing them radiate in healthiest green;

sometimes we see, like their lilac head cower

the delicate bloom of a cuckoo-flower.

 

**

Nature reflects the sunbeam’s mellow

by coloring the daffodil in most luscious yellow.

Tulips are blooming in pink, red and white

in sunshine, and purple it’s a beautiful sight!

 

**

The pink and white lyre-flower catches our eye

Forget-me-not and lilies-of-the-valley seem to bloom shy.

The strong red of the corn poppy, it seems to sing

while there are so many colors of peony dancing the swing.

**

 

Nature provides us with the most beautiful range

of colors to enjoy, to impress, to accept, but not change.

It’s spring time, energy, happiness, vivid life and a smile

given by nature, with talent, with grace, and most, with style.

Something to do before Summer Ends…

So nice… and what a wonderful reminder that we just should stop once in a while and take time to smell the flowers… time for little things! Thank you, Story Reading Ape, for this post!
