In the Springing of the Year

From “A Prayer in Spring”

by Robert Frost

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.

  1. Another of my favourite poems Cathy which I have posted on my blog too. Would it be great if we could press a pause button at the ‘springing of the year’ 🙂

    • Yes, put it on hold for a couple more weeks of cherry blossom! Robert Frost has become a favourite of mine. I only discovered him a few months ago. He was simply so good at writing about nature!
