Show and Tell Monday

Easter Time

A time for all the Bunnies to appear, Eggs to be hidden squeals of delight from both children and adults alike. To look for the first showing of the daffodils and the first sign of Spring, this poem sums up Spring for me and gentle school days of learning classics in the warm dyas under an old oak tree:

"Daffodils" (1804)

I WANDER'D lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine

And twinkle on the Milky Way,
They stretch'd in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they

Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed -- and gazed -- but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie

In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

By William Wordsworth (1770-1850).

Then a glimpse that spring has sprung and the knowledge that long summer days are almost here. After the winter we have all had I think I am looking forward to Spring and Summer more this year than before.

The Easter bunnies with the help of the fairies have had their thinking caps on and have come up with a fun Easter breakfast set of table mat, egg cosy and napkin, to brighten the day. Only 4 available in this fun Easter Egg design.

Off for some more designing and planning for a gift and card selection for Mothering Sunday and more for Easter.
