Sunday Sundries - Edition 63


For flowers that bloom about our feet,
Father, we thank Thee;
For tender grass so fresh and sweet,
Father, we thank Thee.
For the song of bird and hum of bee,
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

  4. I've been reading Emerson lately -- he has much wisdom to share. Lovely end-of-summer image, Cathy!
