O, beautiful rainbow; - all woven of light!
There's not in thy tissue, one shadow of night;
Heaven surely is open when thou dost appear,
And, bending above thee, the angels draw near,
And sing, - "The rainbow! the rainbow!
The smile of God is here."
~Sarah Josepha Hale
think that I cannot preserve my health and spirits, unless I spend four
hours a day at least - and it is commonly more than that - sauntering
through the woods and over the hills and fields, absolutely free from
all worldly engagements. ~Henry David Thoreau
