Since this week was devoted to Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), I felt it was fitting to end with happy quotes and poems about the seasons.
"The seasons are what a symphony ought to be: four perfect movements in harmony with each other."
"Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each. Let them be your only diet drink and botanical medicines."
~Henry David Thoreau
"Our seasons have no fixed return,
Without our will, they come and go;
At noon our sudden summer burns,
Ere sunset, all is snow.
~James Russell Lowell
The Twelve Months
Snowy, Flowy, Blowy,
Showery, Flowery, Bowery,
Hoppy, Croppy, Droppy,
Breezy, Sneezy, Freezy.
