Beauty No. 8

Today was one of the first days that hasn't rained! Also, it was above 45 degrees! We had to do somehting nice outside today so we went on a bike ride and had a picnic today! It was absolutely perfect! It was about 75 degrees, the sun was shinning, and where we had our picnic there was a man playing old violin tunes. It was picture perfect!

A day of Sunshine
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

O gift of God! O perfect day:
Whereon shall no man work, but play;
Whereon it is enough for me,
Not to be doing, but to be!

Through every fibre of my brain,
Through every nerve, through every vein,
I feel the electric thrill, the touch
Of life, that seems almost too much.

I hear the wind among the trees
Playing celestial symphonies;
I see the branches downward bent,
Like keys of some great instrument.

And over me unrolls on high
The splendid scenery of the sky,
Where though a sapphire sea the sun
Sails like a golden galleon,

Towards yonder cloud-land in the West,
Towards yonder Islands of the Blest,
Whose steep sierra far uplifts
Its craggy summits white with drifts.

Blow, winds! and waft through all the rooms
The snow-flakes of the cherry-blooms!
Blow, winds! and bend within my reach
The fiery blossoms of the peach!

O Life and Love! O happy throng
Of thoughts, whose only speech is song!
O heart of man! canst thou not be
Blithe as the air is, and as free?      

Here are some of the pictures, these are my favorite ones from today!

This was our lunch! Water, Salami, Camabert, Pistachio spread, Walnut bread, and Ameretto cookies!


Doesn't this look so Romantic?
