Over The Land Is April by Robert Louis Stevenson

Studio JRU is starting a weekly meme about a project you are working on. It can be any sort of project. Are you making something? Doing something?


Our project has been going to see my Mom once a week for no reason at all.
Just for a hug and some love.

Over the land is April,


The sound of singing goes.
Say, love, do you hear me,
Hear my sonnets ring?


Over the high, brown mountain,
Love, do you hear me sing?
By highway, love, and byway


The snows succeed the rose.
Say, love, do you hear me,
I sound the song of spring,

Do you hear the song of spring?
Hear you the songs of spring?
I throw the flowers of spring.
You Capture: Fun

Hear my sonnets ring? 
Over the high, brown mountain.
The wind of winter blows.

Over my heart a rose;

Over the high, brown mountain

I would put that picture of that lone tree on my wall. It's beautiful. And the way you went through the fence(?) with the pictures of K was brilliant.

Cheers,

Casey
