Answer to a Child’s Question
by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Do you ask what the birds say? The sparrow, the dove,
The linner and thrush say, “I love and I love!”
In the winter they’re silent — the wind is so strong;
What it says, I don’t know, but it sings a loud song.
But green leaves, and blossoms, and sunny warm weather,
And singing, and loving — all come back together.
But the lark is so brimful of gladness and love,
The green fields below him, the blue sky above,
That he sings, and he sings; and for ever sings he-
“I love my Love, and my Love loves me!”
awww, sweet!! lov the music from birds and their chirpiness makes me chirpy, too. 🙂
Tonia chirping… we’re having a snow storm here today and the birds are quiet, so I’m glad you showed up. 🙂
Whatthuh…oh dear, i did this to myself. me the chirping chickie. 🙂

oh, let it snow and let it show…post a picture and let us see your world.
make a snowman and give him obnoxious traits and be the talk of your nieghborhood. lol 🙂
Hi-de-ho, twas a fluffy snow. Not conducive for building snowmen but light for shoveling the driveway. The neighbors be safe from obnoxious traits… for now. I took a couple of cold rushed photos but unfortunately they turned out blue like you. Hopefully you’re feeling better now. I did have one photo that perhaps I’ll post sometime of the truck grill that if you have a great imagination you might see a snow angel. 🙂
oh cool! i would love to see whatever you have to share. a snow angel..neato! 🙂
