Ah, Summer. So much beauty. I was reminded each day of how grateful I am to be living in a spot of the world that I love, and to be sharing it with - and seeing it through the eyes of - these amazing little people too. We'll be kicking out the season summer-style today. Can you guess how? By going to the beach, naturally.
Enjoy your last day of summer! (or, winter, if that's where you are!) Here's a summer favorite of ours:
When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy,
And the dimpling stream runs laughing by;
When the air does laugh with our merry wit,
And the green hill laughs with the noise of it;
When the meadows laugh with lively green,
And the grasshopper laughs in the merry scene;
When Mary and Susan, and Emily
With their sweet round mouths swing, "Ha, Ha, He!"
When the painted birds laugh in the shade,
When our table with cherries and nuts is spread:
Come live, and be merry, and join with me,
To sing the sweet chorus of, "Ha, Ha, He!"
- Laughing Song, Willam Blake
