Summer Snapshot: Sunshine

Keep your face always toward the sunshine –
and shadows will fall behind you.

[Walt Whitman]

Sunny Brilliance

 

Like a plant that starts up in showers and sunshine
and does not know which has best helped it to grow,
it is difficult to say whether
the hard things or the pleasant things
did me the most good.

[Lucy Larcom]
