But a brown bird sang in the apple-tree,
And a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me.
And the wind went sighing over the land,
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand-
So what could I do but laugh and go?
-Richard Le Gallienne
Oh, how I love this quote! Years ago I was a huge Elton John fan and this poem was on one of his album jackets (tells you a bit about how old I am!)
Then a few years back I found it again in a magazine and clipped it out, and it just hung around my bedroom for quite a while. It's a miracle I found it again when I fixed up my studio because I really wanted to have this quote hanging in my studio.
Anyway, I thought it appropriate to post now, that Spring is almost here, even though it's cold and rainy in the Willamette Valley right now.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all!
