gathering days…two hundred eighty seven.
The earth laughs in flowers…
I love that quote and have always thought it the artistry of E.E.Cummings.
I was surprised, therefore, to get a little note telling me the author is actually Ralph Waldo Emerson, from his poem Hamatreya. Truly? Truly.
It came to me, once again, that I don’t like being wrong. But I like learning even more, which is good as I’m not right as often as I’d like.
So thank you, to the poetic heart over at LADY-USKGLASS
Every day one should at least hear one little song,
read one good poem,
see one fine painting and — if at all possible — speak a few sensible words.
— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The earth laughs in flowers.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Be persuaded, timid soul, that He has loved you too much to cease loving you.
~ Francois Fenelon
