Apple Blossoms



Apple Blossoms
Of all the months that fill the year,
Give May’s month to me,
For earth and sky are then so filled
With sweet variety.

The apple-blossoms’ shower of pearl
Though bent with rosier hue,
As beautiful as woman’s blush,
As evanescent too.

On every bough there is a bud,
In every bud a flower;
But scarcely bud or flower will last
Beyond the present hour.

Now comes a shower-cloud o’er the sky,
Then all again sunshine;
Then clouds again, but brightened with
The rainbow’s coloured line.

Ay, this, this is the month for me:
I could not love a scene
Where the blue sky was always blue,
The green earth always green.
(Letitia E. Landon, 1802-1838)
I found this beautiful poem in the blog of Ellen.



Thank you!

PS
I replaced the month of April with May because it is
the month of Apple Blossoms in Finland.

  6. How nice to meet you.

    Your apple blossom pics are tremendous.
    So dainty and subtle.
    I was dissatisfied with my picture of it, so I went out into the garden and took another one. Just finsihed working on it. I hope you got to see it.
