Hey, it’s #VerseThursday
I’m feeling some A E Housman
Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.
Now, of my threescore years and ten,
Twenty will not come again,
And take from seventy springs a score,
It only leaves me fifty more.
And since to look at things in bloom
Fifty springs are little room,
About the woodlands I will go
To see the cherry hung with snow.
@Grey_Ghost It's his birthday today! He'd be 161.
@mlevel well, what do you know. It was meant to be, no wonder I was feeling a strong vibe today.
"Give me a land of boughs in leaf
A land of trees that stand;
Where trees are fallen there is grief;
I love no leafless land."
