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.

spring is hereOh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,

Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;

And make us happy in the happy bees,

The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

white flowers

 

And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.

purplesFor this is love and nothing else is love,

The which it is reserved for God above

To sanctify to what far ends He will,

But which it only needs that we fulfill.

I walked outside this morning, the day before Easter and saw these amazingly beautiful flowers surrounding my walkway.  The skies were blue and I felt happy. I felt God.  I grabbed my camera and took these pictures so I could share the beauty with you. My pictures don’t do Frost’s Spring poem justice-the only thing that could would be for you to walk through a blooming orchard or sit in a garden and reflect on the poem’s words, and enjoy the moment. Take a second and listen to Your Love is Strong – it’s moving, earthy, rich. Just Like God, Just like spring. Happy Easter….Kathy

  1. Wow Kathy! The photos are incredible and the writing rich indeed. What a beautiful blog page…what a beautiful God…what a beautiful woman you are in Him. HAPPY EASTER.

  2. Stunning photos of the crocus flowers. The poem is lovely. And the the song by John Forman referencing The Lord’s prayer is perfect. Needed that today. Thanks for the encouraging post. God is on time, ALL the time. Happy Easter !
