it was even better in person

IMG_6943 IMG_6946 Oh, beautiful world of green!

When blue-birds carol clear

And rills outleap

And new buds peep

And the soft sky seems more near,

With billowy green and leaves—what then?

How soon we greet the red [or pink] again!

from “Around the Year” by George Cooper in The Bookshelf for Boys & Girls, Happy Hours in Storyland, vol. 2.   (more on that tomorrow!)
