Living Gold

 

Live thy Life,

Young and old,

Like yon oak,

Bright in spring,

Living gold;

Summer-rich

Then; and then

Autumn-changed

Soberer-hued

Gold again.

All his leaves

Fall’n at length,

Look, he stands,

Trunk and bough

Naked strength.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson

 

Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.

Willows, Aspens, and Little Breezes

 

Willows whiten, aspens quiver,

Little breezes dusk and shiver.

– Alfred, Lord Tennyson, “The Lady of Shalott”

 

Nurture peace. Cultivate kindness. Carry the calm.
