Our lives, Sublime!

A Psalm of Life
What the heart of the young man said to the Psalmist
[An Excerpt}

Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time;--

Footprints, that perhaps another,
Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.

Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.
From "Voices of the Night"
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

today is is a bowl full of plums & juicy ripe apples...

today ~ *she wears red roses in her hair*
