{June 16, 2011}   Weekly Photo Challenge:Morning

What can I say about Morning? Besides the very unusual past few days where I have been seeing it more often, I normally am not very close with it. I’ve just always been a night owl and even when forced to be up early(or even accidentally up early), I tend to frown upon the morning sun rather than greet it lovingly.

So this challenge is so not my forte and I definitely frowned upon the idea of picking photos with a “Morning” theme. I tried to best pick pictures that I thought fit this theme the best…at least in my interpretation and outlook on it.

A Summer Morning

  by: Martha Lavinia Hoffman (1865-1900)


Welcome, glad morning, night’s sable curtain
Rolls from the valley and mountains away;
Bursts the great sun forth in glorious splendor,
Herald of morning and king of the day!

Far in the distance the brooklet is singing,
The honey-bee hums o’er the fair, fragrant flower,
High in the tree-tops sweet bird songs are ringing;
And far to the west the tall mountain peaks tower.

Up in the oak tree, canaries sing gaily,
Linnets perch, chirping, on trellis and wall;
Sweet, merry warblers, ye gladden me, daily,
As down from the tree-tops your merry notes fall.

Beautiful picture, mountain and green wood,
Clad in rich robes, like a fairy queen’s song,
Radiant Summer! to thy great storehouse
All of these beauties and wonders belong.

Hope you enjoyed my pictures and the poem! What’s your opinion of mornings? Do you

love or hate them? Both?

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
