Spring is on the way…

Pansy through the window


“Come, fill the Cup, and the Fire of Spring
The Winter Garment of Repentance fling
The Bird of Time has but a little way
To fly—and Lo! The Bird is on the Wing.
–Omar Khayyam—

Through the cold and rain I see
A pretty pansy calls to me.
The buds swell on the maple tree,
And longer days are calling me.

The wind brings in the cold and yet
I gaze beyond the dreary wet,
And find a mood of gentle cheer
To know that Spring is drawing near.

Share a smile with everyone around you
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz, Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days

    Not only have you quoted Leonard Cohen but now you’ve mentioned Omar Khyyam! What a man!
