A perfect poem for Spring

A shy violet in the grass
This lovely poem by Lord Alfred Tennyson is perfect for a Spring day.

Now dance the lights on lawn and lea,
The flocks are whiter down the vale,
And milkier every milky sail
On winding stream or distant sea;

When now the seamew pipes, or dives
In yonder greening gleam and fly
The happy birds, that change their sky
To build and brood, that live their lives

From land to land, and in my breast
Spring wakens too; and my regret
Becomes an April violet,
And buds and blossoms, like the rest.

Every day there is a new camellia bud on display

Spring flowers, an original watercolour by Little Lou
