I Meant To Do My Work Today
I meant to do my work today,
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree,
And a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me.
And the wind went sighing over the land,
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand--
So what could I do but laugh and go?
~ Richard Le Gallienne
This poem speaks to me -- every line makes me smile and nod my head. How often have I been distracted by nature? Too many times to count. It's hard to focus on work when the earth is putting on a show. Wishing you all a very happy Earth Day! :)
