An altered look about the hills;
A Tyrian light the village fills;
A wider sunrise in the dawn;
A deeper twilight on the lawn;
A print of a vermilion foot;
A purple finger on the slope;
A flippant fly upon the pane;
A spider at his trade again;
An added strut in chanticleer;
A flower expected everywhere ..."

~Emily Dickinson

My guess is it's still raining there too. I try to tell myself that at least it's not cold, so there is progress. I just wish the rain would stop and it would dry out enough to do all the gardening chores waiting for me.

A beautiful poem. I just love it. Makes me feel as if I'm walking in a spring woods.

Let us just hope that the stream doesn't go into a flood mode. It is a beautiful area.

I just love both, the picture and the poem. The picture reminds me of driving along side the French Broad River when the children were small and we lived in Tennessee.

I love this poem, it's been a long time since I read it and I'd forgotten about it, and how beautiful it is to read, especially this time of year.

I love this angle of a covered bridge! I never thought to take a picture from inside the covered bridges around here but thanks to your inspiration I sure will be experimenting this summer!
