Swiftly, Silently


 
The rush of the seasons
Makes nary a sound
Yet, suddenly spring is upon us
Be careful. Lest slowly you turn around
To see autumn’s sweeping chorus

A gathering of bread,
A labor of spoil
The swift, silent night of slumber
Live well thy moment
Of pleasure and toil
for each of man’s days has a number

So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. Psalms 90:12http://bible.cc/psalms/90-12.htm

  2. No, these are next door at Bill's...he's grown quite accustomed to seeing me wandering around with my camera....funny story with this one! I was out with the little guys I baby-sit and I asked the 5 yr. old if he want to come and see the pussy-willow tree...he looked up from bouncing on the trampoline and said, 'nah, you can just take a picture and show that to me...':)
