To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee





We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aid, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn.    later, she sat on the ground in the forest between school and home, and spring was so bright and beautiful, the warm air touched her so tenderly, she could almost feel herself changing into a flower. her light dress felt like petals.

“i love everything” she heard herself say.




The Loveliest of trees 
 
Loveliest of trees the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.

Now of my three score years and ten,
twenty will not come again.
And take from seventy years a score, 
It only leaves me fifty more.

And since to look at things in bloom,
Fifty Springs is little room, 
About the woodlands I will go
To see the cherry hung with snow.




We are sealed in our own little melancholy atmospheres, like planets, and revolving around the sun, our common but distant desire.’  I wish I could press snowflakes into a book like flowers...



Nature
WILL there really be a morning?
Is there such a thing as day?
Could I see it from the mountains
If I were as tall as they?
  
Has it feet like water-lilies?       
Has it feathers like a bird?
Is it brought from famous countries
Of which I have never heard?
  
Oh, some scholar! Oh, some sailor!
Oh, some wise man from the skies!       
Please to tell a little pilgrim
Where the place called morning lies!





It is a gratification to me to know that I am ignorant of art, and ignorant also of surgery. Because people who understand art find nothing in pictures but blemishes, and surgeons and anatomists see no beautiful women in all their lives, but only a ghastly stack of bones with Latin names to them, and a network of nerves and muscles and tissues.

When I am king, they shall not have bread and shelter only, but also teachings out of books, for a full belly is little worth where the mind is starved.







TO make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,—
One clover, and a bee,
And revery.
The revery alone will do
If bees are few.
