Poetry Corner

Beneath the crisp and wintery carpet hid
A million buds but stay their blossoming;
And trustful birds have built their nests amid

The shuttering boughs, and only wait to sing

Till one soft shower from the south shall bid

And hither tempt the pilgrim steps

Of Spring.
Robert Bridges
Feeling a little poetic today, and opened my Bartlett's Familiar addition published in 1955.
A treasure trove of quotes and poems, with an index to help you find a poem or quote for every occasion.

More snow, a pot of soup for dinner, a meeting of my Guild.  Enjoy this beautiful day my friends.

Lovely words and pictures, Penny. My favorite is the tracks in the snow. Enjoy your day too.
