Enjoy …and give something today!

A bell’s not a bell ’til you ring it,
A song’s not a song ’til you sing it.
Love in your heart wasn’t put there to stay,
Love isn’t love ’til you give it away!”
—Oscar Hammerstein

A Spring of Tantalizing Pleasures

Tomorrow is the first day of spring here in the northern hemisphere. But, I shall wait no longer, I’m starting today! Below is my method for enjoying spring year-round. I call it “The 12 Months of Spring.” Hope you enjoy it.

       The 12 Months of Spring

Spring is a flower whose colors arouse;
Spring is a friend whose aura allows.

Spring is a smile whose flutter assures.
Spring is a fragrance whose escape allures. 

Spring is a dance whose step excites;
Spring is an embrace whose touch delights.

Spring is a song whose harmony supplants;
Spring is a romance whose rapture enchants.

Spring is hope and wonderment and treasures.
I shall not wait to tolerate its pleasures!

—Paul Mark Sutherland

Happy Spring to all.
