Noon hour in Tappan, New York

ah such a sweet chorus of song birds do sing
calling melodies of the coming Spring
warming sun and so bright a lambent sky
the delight of majestic blue on high
fresh and light be this noon day air
this day's offering so wonderfully fair
with all that calls to heart this day
blessed be nature's bounty and THE WAY.

  1. RoseMarie - I saw you, just beyond my dining room window - yes, there you are - just before the budding forsythia - listening to the brook babble and capturing pictures of bird in waiting - yes, I see you, just beyond. I reach out my hand.............we grab on and walk....

    Loving you in Spring

  2. Ahhhhh...spring is in the air! Even here in Florida where winter is not so difficult...everyone responds to the blooming flowers and the warmth of the sun! We enjoy it now for very soon the heat will be brutal and the humidity a presence one can touch and feel...making breathing difficult and lounging in the sun risky business! Thank you for your words which prove that sometimes the words are worth more than the picture!

  3. Gail, Oh how delightful a vision - and so it comes to pass and our joy is known.

    Much love,
    Rose Marie

  4. Theanne, And I thank you, wishing you all the wondrous majesty of Spring anew... such a captivating time. Today was so gentle a day.

    Much love,
    Rose Marie
