Thursday Thoughts: Childhood

Childhood is the bough where slumbered

Birds and blossoms many-numbered;

Age, that bough with snows encumbered.

Gather, then, each flower that grows

When the young heart overflows,

To embalm that tent of snows.

-Maidenhood.

This is taken from Through the Year with Longfellow. Years ago, my grandfather gave me a copy of the antique book. The inside inscription reads, in perfect cursive, “Miss Annie L Adams” and it was given to her from a man named Dexter. 

Anna’s new swing, a birthday present from her grandparents.
