Post Robert Frost born on this day in 1874
Garrison Keillor recognized the date on "Poet's Almanac." He gave some of the great American poet's bio and ended with his early poem "A Prayer in Spring." Can't think of a better prayer, especially with spring arriving so late this year.

A Prayer in Spring

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.

For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfil.

Good timing. Frost is one of my favorite poets. He's very accessible, isn't he?

Robert Frost is one of my favorite poets. His words are so simple and his messages so sweet and peaceful.
