Spring is strong and virtuous,
Broad-sowing, cheerful, plenteous,
Quickening underneath the mould
Grains beyond the price of gold.
So deep and large her bounties are,
That one broad, long midsummer day
Shall to the planet overpay
The ravage of a year of war.

Your photos go so well with Emerson’s words… I especially love “Deep In.” The “strong” “cheerful” colors of spring contrasted with the “ravaged” leaves!
I really had to search for a quote/poem, I am glad I found the correct one!
Thank you so much!
