For sun and sky and air and light,
But stood out in the open plain
And always got its share of rain,
Never became a forest king
But lived and died a scrubby thing.
To gain and farm his patch of soil,
Who never had to win his share
Of sun and sky and light and air,
Never became a manly man
But lived and died as he began.
The stronger wind, the stronger trees;
The further sky, the greater length;
The more the storm, the more the strength.
By sun and cold, by rain and snow,
In trees and men good timbers grow.
We find the patriarchs of both.
And they hold counsel with the stars
Whose broken branches show the scars
Of many winds and much of strife.
This is the common law of life.
You can tell when the school year is winding down when Junior Prom comes and goes and Grandma is invited to go to her grandson's kindergarten program. Both were amazing events.
This is such a yummy dessert. This is what I made for the kids to eat after Junior Prom. Pretty decadent! Thanks Tammy for the recipe!
This recipe was adapted from one in the Savoring the Seasons Cookbook from Our Best Bites. It is a perfect choice for a grandkid slumber party at Grandma's house.
I read another great murder mystery this month. It also has a little bit of a romance interest in it to spice things up a smidge.
