The Woods

by Jessie Ziegle

O, come to the woods, sweet Jenny.
Come to the woods with me
To smell the earth’s damp fragrance
And plants from the earth set free.

From winter’s cold dark prison
Seeking the sun’s bright beam
Hearing the voice of the prompter,
“Come up, awake from your dream.”

The buttercup is blooming
It has spread a yellow sheen
And out upon the water
You can see some velvet green.

The phlox are every color,
Their fragrance fills the air,
And at our feet so tiny,
The violets nestle there.

O Jenny, peek beneath the leaves
To see the flowers fair
In purple, white, or yellow,
An exquisite jewel rare.

I could name the lilies red
And lilies white and blue.
In all of this great company
I’ve only named a few.

But if I’m gone, dear Jenny,
And can’t take you by the hand,
Take Mom and Dad to the woods someday
And experience something grand.

For God created simple things
Like flowers and songs of birds
To be enjoyed in quietness
Without the sound of words.

    Afternoon All. 36* and slightly overcast.

    Have to do some housekeeping and get what I need to wrap a present for a bridal shower on Sat. This young couple is so sweet and very good friends with my son and his wife. I looked at her website of things she would like to have and I loved everything on it. Oh, one thing on the list is an old fashioned clothes wringer. I hope she isn’t planning on washing everything by hand. I can tell her that would be a chore and a half. The bride does seem to be pretty old=fashioned and that isn’t a criticism.

    Well, have fun and enjoy the day.
