Monday in Seattle. Picture and Quote for the Week, May Blossoms

May opened up her basket,
And I looked in to see
A sky of blue,
The great sun too,
Both smiling out at me.

May opened up her basket,
And out the flowers fell.
Their fragrance spilled
Until it filled
All nature with its spell.

May opened up her basket,
Her choristers were there!
Their welcoming
To joy and spring
Was wafted on the air.

She opened up her basket-
The world was blithely gay.
Earth knew again
The ample regin
And blessing of the May!

~Leland B. Jacobs

  1. This poem sums up all the offerings of the month of May. Lilacs are also one of my favourite flowers! I can't wait until they bloom here in Canada!
