Thought for the Week

“These are the things I prize and hold of dearest worth:

light of the sapphire skies, peace of the silent hills,

shelter of the forests, comfort of the grass,

music of birds, murmur of little rills,

shadows of cloud that swiftly pass,

and, after showers, the smell of flowers

and of the good brown earth, –

and, best of all, along the way, friendship and mirth.”

Henry Van Dyke, God of the Open Air
