I enjoyed the summer

We should enjoy this summer,

flower by flower, as if it were to be the

last one we’ll see.

I had faith

‘Tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes!

William Wordsworth

I dazzled

Blue thou art, intensely blue; Flower, whence came thy dazzling hue?

I was a busy bee

How doth the little busy bee
Improve each shining hour,
And gather honey all the day
From every opening flower.
  Isaac Watts, Against IdlenessDSC_3000-2.jpg

I did not toil or spin

Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Luke 12:27, King James Bible

I flew from flower to flower

A flash of harmless lightning, A mist of rainbow dyes, The burnished sunbeams brightening From flower to flower he flies.

I sang a song of Spring

–  Francis M. Chapman

I heard the color

–  Rainer Maria Rilke

I was extraordinary

In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.

I rocked

He rocks in the treetops all day long
Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and singing his song
All the little birds on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet-tweet-tweet
Rockin’ robin, (tweet-tweet-tweet)
Rock-rock-rockin’ robin’ (tweet-tweedilly-tweet)
Go rockin’ robin ’cause we’re really gonna rock tonight (tweet-tweedilly-tweet)
