    Hi,

    It’s spring. So,

    “Love the sunshine of the meadow,
    Love the shadow of the forest
    Love the wind among the branches,
    And the rain-shower and the snow-storm,
    And the rushing of great rivers.”

    The Song of Hiawatha by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
    (English Cafe 592)

    Tania, it´s wonderful poem, beauty and deep indeed.
    Thanks a lot.

    Here it is my own reflection about life…..

    +++++
    Mercedes Sosa;
    Thanks to life, which has given me so much
    He gave me two stars, which when I open them,
    Perfect I distinguish black from white
    And in the high sky its starry background
    And in the crowds the man I love

    +++++++++++

    emiliano;

    And she continues her wonderful poetry in which she thanks the infinite of things that life gave to her and to the rest of human beings, we, who sometimes ignorant of those gifts we live without being aware of the benefits that we have received for the simple fact To live and be what we are.

    In my case I would add that life has not given so much It has given everything without sparing not one thing.
    I am what I am, what I think, what I see, what I feel, the love I receive, the one I have given and I give, thanks to what?
    To life of course and to the Creator that has allowed me to live and to proclaim it to the four winds.

    Thank you, thank you very much for everything, thanks to the life that makes me move my fingers on the keyboard of the computer without seeing the letters I pulse, only the characters that appear on the screen almost without realizing what I write.

    Thanks to my father for giving me the self, my sisters, my wife, my daughters, my friends and of course you who are reading this I write.

    And thanks also to the good advice of all my educators, of whom at some point I have denied and today I am extremely grateful.
    Yes, they gave me a very good education, ethical and human, as well as taught me to think, something very important that today is not usually learned.
    Thinking, discerning good from evil, ethics and honesty, these educators as well as my parents knew how to instill in my person something imperishable while having a breath of life.

    Thanks to the life that has given everything to me and continues to give me, because without going further gives me the music I am now listening and the pleasure of enjoying it with you my Blog´s friends.

    Be good soon dear Tania. emiliano
