Slow Down Spring!

The last few weeks have sped by. They have been crammed with new ventures and seem to be keeping pace with all the new growth.

It has been a beautiful Spring but has passed so quickly.

'The glassy pear tree leaves and blooms , they brush the descending blue'
( I know it's a cherry...)

The first blossoms have come and gone

'Weeds in wheels shot long and lovely and lush'

The gardens are full of flowers

'What is all this juice and all this joy?'

and the fields are full of sheep, contented with their lambs beside them.

'The lambs too have fair their fling'

For me though, the true glory of Spring is the bluebells

Who fill the woods with scent and colour and make you want to sing with joy

'That blue is all in a rush with richness'

But hurry, hurry, let's go outside and not miss a moment

I want to capture every beautiful day

'Nothing is so beautiful as Spring'

My apologies for mangling Gerard Manley Hopkins perfect poem
