May the Angels protect you —
May the Sadness forget you —
May the Goodness surround you —
And may God always bless you —
Happy Easter!!! ~ author unknown
Taciturn turtle, Spartan of simple space,
Of what do you think as you make slow pace
Across the humming highway’s span?
So small a life to immerse
In the ferment of the Universe!
Yet, someway, you ,too, are akin to man.
~from To aTurtle by Maxine McCray Miller
A Little Madness in the Spring
A little Madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King,
But God be with the Clown —
Who ponders this tremendous scene —
This whole Experiment of Green —
As if it were his own!
~ Emily Dickinson
