All In Bloom

A Prayer in Spring
Robert Frost (1915)

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.
Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.
And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.
For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfil

Mosaic Monday

My favorite day of the week.  Link up to Little Red House to enjoy the days unfolding of Mosaics.

    Each flower is a miniature work of art – so beautiful!

    I love that you used blue lines to frame each flower. Really sets of all the other colors nicely… a great mosaic and thanks for posting it for our enjoyment.
