The Lily of the Valley


Sweetest of the flowers a-blooming
In the fragrant vernal days
Is the Lily of the Valley
With its soft, retiring ways.

Well, you chose this humble blossom
As the nurse's emblem flower,
Who grows more like her ideal
Every day and every hour.

Like the Lily of the Valley
In her honesty and worth,
Ah, she blooms in truth and virtue
In the quiet nooks of earth.

Tho' she stands erect in honor
When the heart of mankind bleeds,
Still she hides her own deserving
In the beauty of her deeds.

In the silence of the darkness
Where no eye may see and know,
There her footsteps shod with mercy,
And fleet kindness come and go.

Not amid the sounds of plaudits,
Nor before the garish day,
Does she shed her soul's sweet perfume,
Does she take her gentle way.

But alike her ideal flower,
With its honey-laden breath,
Still her heart blooms forth its beauty
In the valley shades of death. 



Paul Laurence Dunbar

It "greens" so green

Welcome May!! This is my favorite month of the year 💚 my special month with all its wonderful white and green in the awakening garden and nature around. So no wonder that the range of the monthly colors is full of lovely and amazing greens. Starting with some gorgeous loose warm up washes and the sweet lilies of the valley in my garden.



Hope you enjoy my new Color of the Month Challenge. 

xxx,

Isabella
