Spring - Keep Us Here

springtime window at Colonial Williamsburg

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

(excerpt from A Prayer in Spring by Robert Frost)


  1. Yes, indeed. As the Word says, Take no thought for tomorrow, for tomorrow has it's own worries.
    I will take no thought for what the harvest may or may not bring, but simply enjoy the season I am in.

  2. Isn't This pretty!! Says Spring doesn't it?!!
    Happy night friend!
