There’s music in the sighing of a reed;
There’s music in the gushing of a rill;
There’s music in all things, if people had ears;
Their earth is but the echo of the spheres.
“He has made everything beautiful in its time …” Ecclesiastes 3:11
Music is in all growing things;
And underneath the silky wings
Of smallest insects there is stirred
A pulse of air that must be heard;
Earth’s silence lives, and throbs, and sings.
~George Parsons Lathrop
One morning last week, a beautiful swallowtail was mud-puddling in our back yard. I couldn’t help but grab the camera and take a few shots. 🙂
“We do not see nature with our eyes, but with our understandings and our hearts.” – William Hazlett
I enjoy the lively energy this small bird exudes as he flutters from feeder to bush to tree — his echoing voice clearly declaring his presence. To be so small, he certainly holds his own with the other birds.
“I’m not going to give up, shut up, or let up, until I’m taken up … as a matter of fact, I’m just getting warmed up!” ~Zig Ziglar
“Come forth, and bring with you a heart
That watches and receives.”
