Some Fine Day Perhaps...

Oh, to be in England
Now that April's there,
And whoever wakes in England
Sees, some morning, unaware,
That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf
Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf,
While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough
In England — now!

~Robert Browning

I'll catch up with you all Thursday...have a fun April Fool's Day!


  1. What a great image to feast my eyes upon this morning! Thanks!

  2. One of my favorite vacations was our Wayfarers Coast to Coast walk in England. It was wonderful!!!

  3. Isn't it fun to imagine beautiful England on an April morning! I doubt I'll ever see it, but still I can picture it. Love this poem, thanks for posting it!

  4. Sigh! To be reposing under an blooming apple tree does look inviting indeed! Any tricks up your sleeve today? Happy April Fool's Day!

  5. Such a beautfil painting and poem!

    I'd love to visit England one day too!

    Happy April 1st!

  6. It is indeed very beautiful today iun England. And the blossom is out on the trees. The birds sing too. And the sky is blue and the sun is shining. Well, it was. It is night time now. And spring flowers are everywhere. The verge alongside the road is full of daffodils. Beautiful!

  7. Once upon a time I went to England in the Spring. I didn't want to come back, everything there is so charming.


  8. I live in Portland, Oregon...it is very similar to England in the weather and geography. So perhaps...I am experiencing a touch of England!

  9. What a pretty picture...much better than the rain/snow mix we had here the morning, brr!!! Thanks for sharing with us!

  10. Oh,lets just pick up and go... do you want to? :-)

  12. Beautiful poem Vee! I hope you are enjoying a happy day.
