Fragrance Quote for February 11th, 2012- SUNRISE IN THE WOOD by Pamela Tennant.

I know a dingle in a leafy wood
Filled with the fragrance of the perfect May.
Here the grey trees for centuries have stood
And Spring wreathes garlands on them new and gay.
Is there a moment of the shining day
Fairer than this which sees the rising sun
Slant the pale yellow of his early ray
On dew-drenched fallows, and the fine threads spun
By long-legged spinners in the clefts of trees
Float their light gossamer upon the breeze?
Here leaps the limber-footed listening hare.
And here the Cuckoo, blithe and debonair
Calls from the willows in the water leas
Remote, elusive, a thin tongue of air.
