Something Wonderful

As we pause to drink in the beauty of the Spring, let’s consider all these wonders of the world as offered in One Thousand Beautiful Things, a heartwarming storehouse of stories and poems that my beloved mom Dorothy always treasured and turned to:

These I’ve Loved

These I’ve loved since I was little:
Wood to build with or to whittle,
Wind in the grass and falling rain,
First leaves along an April lane,
Yellow flowers, cloudy weather,
River-bottom smell, old leather,
Fields newly ploughed, young corn
in rows,
Back-country roads and cawing crows,
Stone walls with stiles going over,
Daisies, Queen Anne’s lace, and clover,
Night tunes of crickets, frog songs, too,
Starched cotton cloth, the color blue,
Bells that ring from white church steeple,
Friendly dogs and friendly people.

Elizabeth-Ellen Long

May you always be surrounded by all those people and things you love. Write on.
