Summertime Sittin'


GROW old along with me!
The best is yet to be,
The last of life, for which the first was made:
Our times are in his hand
Who saith, `A whole I planned,
Youth shows but half; trust God: see all, nor be afraid!''

~ Robert Browning 1812-1889

I do like that poem. The Brownings both wrote beautiful poetry. The photo is lovely too.

The sun is shining here and it's very warm but my garden furniture has blown across the garden! You'll know exactly what I mean if you're a golf fan & are watching The Open at St Andrews!

I don't think I've ever seen a metal love seat like that one, it's so sweet, goes right along with the poem.

Summer sittin' is a luxury that all of us should take advantage of as life slips by so quickly and we need to rest in the shade with a cool breeze blowing across the backs of our necks and through our hair!

Sweet poem and pleasant picture.

God bless and may you have a sweet life!!!

Beautiful, beautiful...

I love the first two lines. Everytime I see/hear them, I get tears in my eyes.

And the last words -- "trust God: see all, nor be afraid!" are SO appropriate at ANY stage of life.

I love both of the Brownings, Jo... The first two lines of that poem just make me cry.... So beautiful!!!!!

Love the double lawn chair... I think someone in my family had one of these at one time...

I just love that yellow seat, it's gorgeous and the first 2 lines of the poem are on a magnet on my fridge.
