Praise the spells and bless the charms,
I found April in my arms.
April golden, April cloudy,
Gracious, cruel, tender, rowdy;
April soft in flowered languor,
April cold with sudden anger,
Ever changing, ever true –
I love April, I love you.
“As an artist, I’d choose the thing that’s beautiful more than the one that’s true.”
“A true conservationist is a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers,
but borrowed from his children.” — John James Audubon
“I don’t want realism. I want magic!”
‘Twas Easter-Sunday. The full-blossomed trees
Filled all the air with fragrance and with joy.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Art thou a hyacinth blossom
The shepherds upon the hills
Have trodden into the ground?
Shall I not lift thee?
