Spring in white and green

Seen in Maisons-Laffitte, near Paris, France.

 

Thanks to Ilse (Ilsebatten on Flick www.flickriver.com/photos/12034714@N02/ )

who sent me this:

 

Nothing is so beautiful as Spring —

When weeds in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;

Thrush's eggs look little low heavens, and thrush

Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring

The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;

The glassy peartree leaves and blooms, they brush

The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush

With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.
