I Meant to Do My Work Today

I meant to do my work to-day —
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


  1. Nice shots Leslie. Are these from this year?

  2. Thanks, Gary. Yes, both were taken on February 17. So I wasn't actually out gallivanting with my camera yesterday as the poem suggests, but I was playing with photos instead of finishing the newsletter I was supposed to be working on!

  3. Gorgeous flowers, looks like spring is here. I enjoyed the poem too!


Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. I truly enjoy hearing from you!
