“Summer is coming!” the soft breezes whisper;
“Summer is coming!” the glad birdies sing.
Summer is coming – I hear her quick footsteps;
Take your last look at the beautiful Spring.
And every stone and every star a tongue,
And every gale of wind a curious song.
The Heavens were an oracle,
and spoke Divinity: the Earth did undertake
The office of a priest; and I
being dumb all things did come
With voices and instructions…
by Thomas Traherne
See how wide the mouth of this gorgeous asiatic lily opens to declare God’s glory! Have a blessed weekend, my friends.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. ~Psalm 19:1-2 ✝
