WHO..


Who loves the trees best?
'I,' said the Spring;
'Their leaves so beautiful
To them I bring.'
Who loves the trees best?
'I,' Summer said;
'I give them blossoms,
White, yellow, red.'
Who loves the trees best?
'I,' said the Fall;
'I give luscious fruits,
Bright tints to all.'
Who loves the trees best?
'I love them best,'
Harsh Winter answered;
'I give them rest.'
—ALICE MAY DOUGLAS."

Hi Duchess, I enjoyed the pretty picture and poem which I don't think I have come across before also one of my favourites, Vivaldi, altogether a lovely treat!

Miss Peach is confused dear Dutches over this poem....I thought that Spring gave the blossoms and Summer brought the leaves!?
At any rate it is lovely to be here for a visit once again and see all the nice cozy touches you have added to your and Miss Mousies nest!
All my very best regards to my dearest mr Bee in the country...
your adoring Miss Peach
