All the lives we ever lived and all the lives to be are full of trees and changing leavesVirginia Woolf
The once red leaf, the last of it’s clan, that dances as often as dance it canSamuel Taylor Coleridge
Flower of this purple dye, hit with Cupid’s archery, Sink in apple of his eyeWilliam Shakespeare
The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.Maud Hart Lovelace
The rays of happiness, like those of light, are colorless when unbrokenHenry Wadsworth Longfellow
Life is like a river …. it flows on and on. We live in a moment, and then it’s gone, never to return. Youth turns old. Only memories are left of the days we first waded into the stream. Life is ever-changing. Enjoy the moments.
Today I saw the dragonfly
Come from the wells where he did lie.
An inner impulse rent the veil
Of his old husk: from head to tail
Came out clear plates of sapphire mail.
He dried his wings: like gauze they grew;
Thro’ crofts and pastures wet with dew
A living flash of light he flew.
Alfred, Lord Tennyson
