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! :)
