• Free Perfume of the Month: Arroyo

    Arise from the ground by the warm rain wet,
    And their breath is mixed with the odor sent
    From the turf, like the voice and the instrument.”

  • The bluebird knows it is April

    Winged lute that we call a bluebird, you blend in a silver strain
    The sound of the laughing water, the patter of spring’s sweet rain,
    The voice of the winds, the sunshine, the fragrance of blossoming things,
    Ah! you are an April poem, that God has dowered with wings!

                                                      —- Eben E. Rexford

  • Narcissus des Montagnes

    LONG-HOPED-FOR Summer days at last have come…
    She, bringing with her sweetest treasure home,
    Decks the fair land with all she can employ,
    Sweet’ning the balmy air with Summer scent,
    Crowning the year with full ennoblement
    Of Summer triumph, and of Summer joy.
                                                —- George Frederick Bodley
