In the Morning
Green Hues of April in Vienna

In the morning of life,
when its cares are unknown,

And its pleasures
in all their new lustre begin,

When we live
in a bright-beaming world of our own,

And the light
that surrounds us is all from within;

Oh 'tis not, believe me,
in that happy time

We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; --
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

Quoted from Thomas Moore's
"In the Morning of Life"

  1. You have a good eye for the delicate shades of color. I fear I most often notice the bold.

  2. with envy for all your Spring greens!!

  3. You always catch the sunlight so beautifully as it highlights the colors and shapes!

  4. This completely made my morning, and set a nice, peaceful tone for the day. I always love how perfectly you can match images with poetry!

  5. Oh, that dome! Like a big upside down tulip! And the translucence and the light on the petals -- you keep on outdoing yourself, Merisi!
